Dear R-help guys,

I am trying to extract two particular words from different files but I am
struggling with the code. The first theree lines of each folder are as

# using minimal fraction of valid points 30.00
# tas [K] from bcc-csm1-1 model output prepared for CMIP5 RCP8.5
# cutting out region lon=    0.000  360.000, lat=  -90.000   90.000

In fact, I am trying to extract the model type (i.e. bcc-csm1-1) and the
forcing scenario (8.5) from line 2. They differ in each folder but they
follow the same structure:The model type is between the words "from" and
"model" and the forcing scenario is just after "RCP".

Does anyone know what code to produce to achieve that?

Thank you in advance.
