Hello Haris,

as you know, Alpha uses log file scanning extensively.
You can look into the file tetexComm.tcl from the AlphaTcl
CVS repository at SourceForge:
to see how the different features are implemented.  I am sure
you can reuse many of the regexps.  These have been gradually
fine tuned over the last four years, and work quite well,
although of course it is all heuristics.
