[Solved] Stringsplit Q

21 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

A question: Is there a function that can do this, or to meke my life a little easier, so I wont need to use those billions of loops to make this:

Say I have any string, for example: Roman Gaman Aijou Ban Or it can be bigger, contain more words

I want to put it into an array like this:

Roman Gaman
Gaman Aijou
Aijou Ban

Whats the best way to do this?

So you want to take a string with 2+ words separated by a single space and output all of the possible 2 word variations from it?

not all possible, only first & second, second & third, third & forth And so on.

So far I got this: But im little skeptical if this will work, cuz its kind of too simple code. :D

$split = stringsplit('1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9',' ')

    For $x = 1 to $split[0] -1

        ConsoleWrite($split[$x] & ' ' & $split[$x+1] & @CRLF)
    Next

    Exit

Edit: hmm yes I think it will work.

Well if that's all you want then that code seems like it should very well do the trick!

Is there a scenario where you're finding that isn't true?

Im not sure yet, this was simple example & only the first possible scenario. next ones will be more complicated, will contain different chars so splitting will be real pain.

But let me ask 1 more thing: how can you find a string between 2 characters or words?

like:[Terunyo Kusatsu] Pet Life [08-11-01]

I need this: An note that I must eliminate the numerical value & keep only text

$fileread = FileRead("path")

$array = StringSplit($fileread, " ", 2)

For $i = 0 To UBound($array) - 2
    FileWrite("path", $array[$i] & " " & $array[$i + 1] & @CRLF)
Next

Looks like I should have refreshed my page before posting :D

You'll want to take a look at StringRegExp. If you've never used stringregexp before, you should read neogia's tutorial.

This expression may work for the 2nd part:

"\[\s*(.+?)\s*\]\s*(.+?)\s*\[\d+-\d+-\d+\]"

#include <Array.au3>
Global $s_string = "[Terunyo Kusatsu] Pet Life [08-11-01]"
Global $s_pattern = "\[\s*(.+?)\s*\]\s*(.+?)\s*\[\d+-\d+-\d+\]"
Global $a_return = StringRegExp($s_string, $s_pattern, 3)
_ArrayDisplay($a_return)

Didn't see you wanted both, fixed code

One important point not mentioned in the tutorial.

"\" can be used to escape special characters, so "\[" doesn't search for "\" and whatever is in the set, it actually searches for "[".

Edit: why is it that I always notice the grammar errors after I click the post button?

and im forced to ask again. how do you display only text inside brackets or exclude the text?

Those above examples dont work, if the string looks little different.

And also I read the guide, And it does not explain how to do that. I tried to modify the sampe above, but I dont understand what im doing :D

So can you please explain also?

say ewe have any string: [desu] [08-11-01] Shigai - konta Pus (sfsg)

And you want to remove everything between [] so result will look like this: Shigai - konta Pus (sfsg)

Well, you could use a flag of 3 and this pattern (I think, haven't tested it)

"\[[a-z]\] \[\d+-\d+-\d+\] ([^\r]{1,})"

Note: since I used \r, it captures everything after the two sets of brackets until a carriage return, if whatever your using this on is formatted differently, you'll have to change it.

String manipulation is a delicate thing when you're playing around like this.

You need to be VERY specific in what you need and what the rest of the layout/text would look like or be when asking for help.

( An example file and specifics of what you're trying to accomplish, along with code you yourself have tried is required )

See, there is no spesific string, the brackets can include anything you can imagine.

For example it can even look like this: Its japanese.

(同人CG集) [地獄ポーション] イ・寺戦隊の桃色.lzh

But see, at this point i understand only as much as the guide explained.

If you could explain how to get rid of everything inside [] and () separately, I would have better understanding how its done & a sample in front of my eyes.

So im hoping for something like this:

$asResult = StringRegExpreplace('(ff456) [e(9843] [5435h.65"#%] some text', 'replace anything inside brackets with','')
$asResult = StringRegExpreplace($asResult , 'replace anything inside soft brackets with nothing',''

Replace everything inside [ ] : )

$string = "I [walked in the park. At around 4 ]am[. It was ] very [late at night. I think I was ]confused [why I was even there. It felt like a dream. I came across a man ]about [my height. He told me about a great thing called ]regexp[, but I didn't know what it was. Then I woke up]."

$data = StringRegExpReplace($string, "\[(.*?)\]", "")
MsgBox(0,"", $data)

The pattern to remove within () is this: \((.*?)\)

Replace everything inside [ ] : )

According to the guide, if you put stuff, inside () you can make groups,then why doesnt it work?

$STRING = '[desu] [08-11-01] Shin - konta Plus(Kano)'
;~ $data = StringRegExpReplace($STRING, "(\[(.*?)\])(\((.*?)\))", "")
$data = StringRegExpReplace($STRING, "\[(.*?)\]\((.*?)\)", "")
MsgBox(0,"", $data)

That checks for [...](...) instead of [...] OR (...).

Use a pipe to say it should search for this or that:

$STRING = '[desu] [08-11-01] Shin - konta Plus(Kano)'
;~ $data = StringRegExpReplace($STRING, "(\[(.*?)\])(\((.*?)\))", "")
$data = StringRegExpReplace($STRING, "\[(.*?)\]|\((.*?)\)", "")
MsgBox(0,"", $data)

Works.

The guide was just to teach the basics of stringregexp. Very useful and well done, yet it doesn't cover everything. You should read through the helpfile.

The reason $data = "" is because Manadar used StringRegExpReplace, and replaced everything in between [] or () with a blank string.

Edit: misread helpfile on stringregexpreplace

$string = "(??CG?) [???????] ?·??????.lzh"

MsgBox(0,"",$string)

;- replace everything inside [] and (), excluding [] & ()
$a = StringRegExpReplace($string, "(?<=\()(.*?)(?=\))|(?<=\[)(.*?)(?=\])", "replacement")
MsgBox(0,"",$a)
