Programming ideas: Best way to move from one field to another

Hi fellow Anki users,

I have about 900 cards which have one field with text both in and out of parentheses. I’d like to move the text in parentheses from one field to another, while keeping the text outside of parentheses in the original field. I want to do this for all of those cards at once. I’m fairly new to programming, but I think it would be fun to try to write this (hopefully simple) program. Does anyone have any tips for where I should be working, what language, and general ideas about searching for words inside parentheses and moving information from one field to another? Or whether there’s actually a really easy way to do this that I probably haven’t thought of (unlikely, I know, but still…)
Please let me know if I need to clarify anything and thank you for any help you can give! :slightly_smiling_face:
