Hi everyone

I am trying to load list items (which are strings) from a text file (.txt)

Well the idea is to transform a dictionarry of words into many words in order to perform some tests on them like filter the words starting with a voyelle and stuff like that...

I tried to use an editable place where to paste the dictionnary (GuiCtrlCreateEdit) then filter each word but that didnt work out or i couldnt make it work...

My question is quite simple ... How the hell can that be done ?

Thanks in advance for any help or support!

Case 'consonants'

GUICtrlSetData($Edit, StringRegExpReplace($sString, '(?i)\b[aeiou]\w*', ''))

Case 'vowels'

GUICtrlSetData($Edit, StringRegExpReplace($sString, '(?i)\b[bcdfgh-np-tv-z]\w*', ''))

Ok now that's kinda chinese for me...

Thanks a bunch anyways

I will try to find out the rest myself

Alright I really learned how to kindly play with characters matching in auto it Now I need to find how to play with characters counting

Example : Removing all the words that have more than 8 characters and less than 6characters.

thanks in advance for help

You use the quantity operators: {}, +, *..

Removing words which are consisting of more than 8 characters:

StringRegExpReplace($sString, '\w{9,}', '')

Less than 6 characters:

StringRegExpReplace($sString, '\w{1,5}\b', '')

..or both:

StringRegExpReplace($sString, '\w{9,}|\w{1,5}\b', '')

\w{9,} means match at minimum 9 alphanumerical characters but can consume up to an arbitrary word length (above 8 characters).

\w{1,5}\b means match between a single alphanumerical character and at most 5 alphanumerical characters but only at a word boundary, so it won't match "abcde_anotherpart" because of an underscore which \w matches as well.

Edit: Moi mistake, the patterns should be:

\b\w{9,} and \b\w{1,5}\b, because of bumpalong RegExp mechanism.

That worked thanks a lot !

One more thing i was tryin to figure out ... How to replace or to delete all the words not containing a special set of characters or containing them and have a character or more over them even if the character is one of the set and comes twice ...

yea man ... I know lol

Here is an example to maybe make it clearer

Example : 1="sea" 2="seat" 3="tase" 4="asset" 5="step" if the set of characters is [aest] it should only keep 1,2&3 and not 4.

I think it's a little bit complicated than you may think. It's not a problem to match this particular case using a fix string alternation. First removing all the words with length greater then 4 and then running a second match and replace on the modified string. The problem appears when the pattern should match to an arbitrary characters set size. I guess that playing with _ArrayPermute() or _ArrayCombinations() may be the right direction, in conjunction with string concatenation operations to assemble a nice giant pattern of all valid permutations.

Edit: I think this is what you're requiring. I hope it's a correct pattern:

Global $sString = 'sea seat tase seas asset step rol seas ssse se sa eas eat'
Global $sPatt = '\b(?:((?:([aest])(?!\w*?\2)){1,4})|\w+)\b'

$sString = StringRegExpReplace($sString, $sPatt, '\1')
ConsoleWrite(@error & @TAB & @extended & @CRLF & $sString & @CRLF)
