[Solved] StringRegExpReplace, pattern size limitation?

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Is there a known StringRegExpReplace() pattern parameter size limitation?

I'm hitting a StringRegExpReplace() error when the pattern string size starts to exceeds ~30500 characters.

Could not find any reverence to this in autoit or pcre.pattern documentation's.

The maximum length of a compiled pattern is 65539 (sic) bytes if PCRE is compiled with the default internal linkage size of 2.

+

We also work in unicode, so 1 char = 2 bytes

~30500 * unicode comes in the neighbourhood of 65539. So I gues thats the reason.

Was missing the unicode doubler.

Thanks.

Just trying to pass a rather big keyword file trough a ReExp.

RE Pattern: '(?i)(?:' & $sWordList & ')\b'

And au3.keywords.udfs as keyword source: 50.000+ characters.
