I wish did fix the issue. I see that your path parts are fixed, so no need to use regexes. Field separation does the trick:
code :
awk -F/ '{print $4,$7}' test.txt
awk -F/ '{a="???";b="???";for (i=0;i<NF;i++) {if (tolower($i)=="system") a= $(i+1); if (($i=="data") && (tolower($(i+2))=="sales")) b = $(i+1)}; print a,b}' test.txt

wish of those help I'm not very good at C, and I always get stuck on simple string manipulation tasks (that's why I love Perl!). , I think sscanf could be appropriate:
code :
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>

void test(char const* path) {
    int len;
    if(sscanf(path, "/Volumes/%*[^/]%n", &len) != EOF) {
        char *drive = malloc(len + 1);
        strncpy(drive, path, len);
        drive[len] = '\0';

        printf("drive is %s\n", drive);
    } else {
        printf("match failure\n");

int main() {
drive is /Volumes/Media
drive is /Volumes/Media
match failure

To fix the issue you can do Here's a quick implementation that returns the TAIL of a path, including the specified number of elements. There's also a bit of demo of how to use it, and the results are exactly the ones you requested. Unfortunately I don't fully understand what transformations you're after: this might be exactly what you're after, or it might be something entirely wrong, that just happens to produce a result that looks like your sample:
code :
program Project25;



function ExtractPathTail(const OriginalPath:string; const PathElemCount:Integer):string;
var i, start, found_delimiters: Integer;
  start := 0;
  found_delimiters := 0;
  for i:=Length(OriginalPath) downto 1 do
    if OriginalPath[i] = '\' then
      if found_delimiters = PathElemCount then
        start := i;
  if start = 0 then
    raise Exception.Create('Original path is too short, unable to cut enough elements from the tail.') // mangled English to help SO's code formatter
    Result := System.Copy(OriginalPath, start+1, MaxInt);

const SamplePath = 'D:\Programs\Tools\Bin\Somefile.dat';

    WriteLn('C:\Users\' + ExtractPathTail(SamplePath, 2)); // prints: C:\Users\Bin\Somefile.dat
    WriteLn('C:\Users\' + ExtractPathTail(SamplePath, 3)); // prints: C:\Users\Tools\Bin\Somefile.dat
    WriteLn('C:\Users\Programs\' + ExtractPathTail(SamplePath, 3)); // prints: C:\Users\Programs\Tools\Bin\Somefile.dat
    on E: Exception do
      Writeln(E.ClassName, ': ', E.Message);

will be helpful for those in need
code :
$path = '/whatever/path/length/public_html/wp-content/plugins/adminimize/languages/adminimize-en_US.mo';
preg_match('/plugins\/([^\/]+?)\/(?:[^\/]+\/)?(.+)/', $path, $matches);
$dir = $matches[1];
$filename = $matches[2];

With these it helps Read in the lines and create a grouping variable, g.all, having a component for each line of the file. That is, it is 1 for each line of the first group, 2 for each line of the second group and so on. Determine which group each of the desired strings are in giving g.ok and then extract all lines from those groups:
code :
L <- readLines("myfile")
g.all <- cumsum(grepl("^\\[", L))
g.ok <- g.all[grep("DB00035|DB00039", L)]
L[g.all %in% g.ok]
g.all <- rev(cumsum(grepl("$$$$", rev(L), fixed = TRUE)))

like below fixes the issue Splice along a delimiter (here, "/"), and then grab the last element. Then create a string to use as the new filename based on that. Paraphrased from the link below;
code :
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>

int main()
    char str[] = "strtok splits once per call, call many times to split full string";
    int init_size = strlen(str);
    char delim[] = "/";

    char *ptr = strtok(str, delim);

    while(ptr != NULL)
        last = ptr //[p]oin[t]e[r]
        ptr = strtok(NULL, delim);
    strcat("newfile.", last)

    //open a file with that name, write to it, etc.

    return 0;
temp = strcat(original_filename, newfile)
new_filename = strcat(temp, original_file_extenstion)
