I need any report files from FEM analysis. Can you help me?

(OP)
Hi,
I want to create application for reading data from FEM output files. They are presented in many ways, but it is always text file.
I'm unable to perform many complex analysis in different FEM applications so If you can, please send me your output files. The more complex it is, the better.
Of course I will use all possible guides for each FEM application, but real examples are better for me.

It isn't always text file. Some output is often output for logging, debug or if requested, but text is a poor format to handle lots of data in a compact form. How does your software differ from something like FEMAP which can read/write to different software inputs and outputs?

I did not express well. Yes, it isn't always text file, but very often and I notice that people use that text files to to process results. Sometimes it was just one number (epsilon in Nastran/Patran from .f06 text file), sometimes it were displacements in specific nodes.
It this situations user has to open that file, find specific rows, copy to excel and utilize it (for example). I want make software to help with this process.

My software is mainly for education purposes, for me. I want practice programming but with practical, engineering background.
I have never used FEMAP. Could you explain me their functionality? What other inputs/outputs from other software does it utilize?

Could you share your experience about processing data from FEM software? I always encounter that people/companies use output text files. And coloured 3D map it is just support.
