```Hi,
I have data with the following structure:  the first element is the
number of variables.  For each variable follow:
title,x_var,y_var,dummy,number of points, {points}. I want to extract
data for each variable. Coming from Fortran I tend to make a Do-cycle,
count for the current position and assign values one by one. Is there a
better approach to this problem?
Thanks,
--Ted

data={{3}, {"T", "vs.", "Distance", "for", "part", 4}, {"Distance"},
{"T"}, {1}, {5}, {0, 300.006}, {5,  300.006}, {10, 300.006}, {15,
300.006}, {20, 300.006},
{"P", vs.", "Distance", "for", "part", 4}, {"Distance"}, {"P"}, {1},
{6}, {0, 1.00007}, {5, 1.00007}, {10, 1.00007}, {15, 1.00007}, {20,
1.00007}, {25, 1.00007},
{"CO2","vs.", "Distance", "for", "part", 4}, {"Distance"}, {"CO2"}, {1},
{7}, {0, 0.000326099}, {5, 0.000326099}, {10, 0.000326099}, {15,
0.000326099}, {20, 0.000326099}, {25, 0.000326099}, {30, 0.000326099}}
