I want to know, how to read the sql transaction log ( *.ldf file )...

So, I found one procedure... in this site:

( I can't put the procedure here, because the code is too big... )

In that site, have a procedure to make this, but I want to know, how and what I need to modify ( I REALLY DO NOT KNOW, SO AM ASKING ), I just want to get the modify values, without generate a UPDATE statement, like in the site..., so, for example, I enter with the LSN numbers in procedure parameter, and, the procedure return for me ( the parsed logrow or something like this... ) a more simple system.... btw, I just want to know, how to make this, because, for me, that procedure is too much complex :(

The fifth link explains how to do it. What is your actual difficulty?

I just want to simplify this procedure, only to return me the information without creating the update command...
for example, I enter the parameters of the procedure with the LSN range that I want him back to me, and it returns me the information, I believe, it is not complicated, because virtually everything is already done, but I do not know how do this :(
There are undocumented functions like DBCC LOG or fn_dblog you can use to read sql transaction log. Those require a t-sql knowledge, and are complex to use if you are not familiar enough with them.

I suggest you read these carefully:
Read SQL Server transaction log
Read the log file (*.LDF) in sql server 2008
How to view transaction logs in sql server 2008

These posts will definately get you started
