How would i split the file name C:\Outlook2\Outlook2.exe

to just Outlook2.exe

so I would use 2 variables

$path = C:\Outlook2\Outlook2.exe

$program = ???? (I want this take the Outlook2.exe out of the path)

Safer way to get last split

;~ #include <Array.au3>

$path = "C:\Outlook2\Outlook2.exe"
$Splited = StringSplit($path,"\")

;~ _ArrayDisplay($Splited)

MsgBox(0,"",$Splited[$Splited[0]])

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

Hi all,

These come courtesy of Malkey (I am not smart enough to do this on my own :D )

Local $sFile = "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.chm"

; Drive letter -                                     Example returns     "C"
Local $sDrive = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, ":.*$", "")

; Full Path with backslash -                         Example returns     "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\"
Local $sPath = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.*\\)(.*)", "\1")

; Full Path without backslash -                     Example returns     "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3"
Local $sPathExDr = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.:)(\\.*\\)(.*$)", "\2")

; Full Path w/0 backslashes, nor drive letter -     Example returns     "\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\"
Local $sPathExDrBSs = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.:\\)(.*)(\\.*$)", "\2")

; Path w/o backslash, not drive letter: -             Example returns     "Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3"
Local $sPathExBS = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.*)\\(.*)", "\1")

; File name with ext -                                 Example returns     "AutoIt3.chm"
Local $sFilName = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\\", "")

; File name w/0 ext -                                 Example returns     "AutoIt3"
Local $sFilenameExExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\\|\..*$", "")

; Dot Extenstion -                                     Example returns     ".chm"
Local $sDotExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\.", ".$1")

; Extenstion -                                         Example returns     "chm"
Local $sExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\.", "")

MsgBox(0, "Path File Name Parts", _
        "Drive             " & @TAB & $sDrive & @CRLF & _
        "Path              " & @TAB & $sPath & @CRLF & _
        "Path w/o backslash" & @TAB & $sPathExBS & @CRLF & _
        "Path w/o Drv:     " & @TAB & $sPathExDr & @CRLF & _
        "Path w/o Drv or \'s" & @TAB & $sPathExDrBSs & @CRLF & _
        "File Name         " & @TAB & $sFilName & @CRLF & _
        "File Name w/o Ext " & @TAB & $sFilenameExExt & @CRLF & _
        "Dot Extension     " & @TAB & $sDotExt & @CRLF & _
        "Extension         " & @TAB & $sExt & @CRLF)

I have used the _PathSplit UDF, this example from manual

#include <file.au3>
#include <array.au3>
Dim $szDrive, $szDir, $szFName, $szExt
$TestPath = _PathSplit(@ScriptFullPath,  $szDrive,  $szDir,  $szFName,  $szExt)
_ArrayDisplay($TestPath,"Demo  _PathSplit()")
