One or more computers receive input indicative of multiple files to be analyzed together, by performing one or more predetermined actions, using the contents (e.g. strings of text) of a corresponding one or more structures. The one or more structures are identified by the presence in each file, of corresponding names. The one or more structures are normally written into the files for use by an application program to layout the contents therein in a structured manner. The one or more computers are programmed to automatically parse each file, to identify therein the one or more layout structures e.g. based on the presence in each file of corresponding names of layout structures. After parsing, the one or more computer(s) perform the one or more predetermined actions, to obtain an output structure that holds the results based on the contents of each layout structure identified in each file.
