[solved]StrRegExp woes.

Recommended Posts


This is my first venture into trying to figure out a simple pattern,

so scoffing and mockery are welcome if accompanied by any error pointers in my pattern.

My string has some whitespace and other characters possibly including line feeds and/or carraige returns

My aim is to strip everything except digits 0-9 and return the result

When the following code is ran with $sVar it seems to work ok "1234"

but using $sVar2 it only returns "1"

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sVar = "1234"
Local $sVar2 = "1 234"

$rtn = StringRegExp($sVar, "(?x)(\d)*",2)

If @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "ERROR", @error & @CRLF & @extended)
    MsgBox(0,"Return" $rtn[0])

Easier to strip all non digit characters.

$s_ret = StringRegExpReplace($s_str, "\D", "")

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
