copy part of the link from .txt

18 posts in this topic

hey guys, i´m currently making a program which should make it easier to upload at 1-click hosters but i cannot get this done:

i have a .txt file with lots of links (each line = 1 link)

now i want the script to read the last letters from each link (each line) and copy everything from the back of the link until the "/" comes.

e.g.

http://blabla.com/gtahatj15/file_name_here.exe

now i want the script to copy "file_name_here.exe"

and that for each line.

i dont know how to tell the script that it should copy only the part after the last "/".

thanks :D

Sounds like a job for StringRegExp()

Unfortunately I am totally crap at creating patterns, maybe you will have more luck than I.

EDIT: not be any good with patterns I would do something like this

Assuming all the links are the same url

$svar = FileReadLine("text.txt",1)

If StringInStr($svar,"http://blabla.com/gtahatj15/") Then
    $var2 = StringReplace($var,"http://blabla.com/gtahatj15/","")
Endif

Obviously in some loop.

I thought StringReg or StringRegExp would be needed, and one of those could probably be used, but since I'm in an 'array learning mode', I came up with this code.

$var = "http://blabla.com/gtahatj15/file_name_here.exe"
$array = StringSplit($var, "/")
ConsoleWrite($array[$array[0]] & @LF)

Edit: Deleted an unnecessary line

aphesia,

Here is one that should work:

$sURL = "http://blabla.com/gtahatj15/file_name_here.exe"

Local $sFileName = StringRegExpReplace($sURL, "^.*\/", "")

ConsoleWrite($sFileName & @CRLF)

It translates as:

^ - start at the beginning

.* - as many characters as it takes

\/ - find a / (you need to use the \ to escape the /)

And because the basic rule is "greedy" (find as many as you can), the .* pattern runs until the final /

Easy, n'est-ce pas? :D

JohnOne,

Do not give up so easily! Simple ones that (like this one that even I can manage) are the best place to start - just do not get too overawed by the real gurus who pop up here! : There is a RegExp trainer somewhere round here which lets you play around with different patterns - I find it very useful.

Edit: The trainer can be found here - have fun! :huggles:

Thanks Melba23

I have not given up, I will get it in the end however long it takes, but I make a complete hash of it with the simplest strings most of the time, so wouldnt dare waste someones time with an effort.

Thank you very kind for the link, I'l be checking it out forthwith.

Thanks for including the 'translation', and the link to the SRETesterV2.1.au3 topic, that'll surely help when I think I get arrays and move onto SRE's..

RegEx is not needed here.

Local $sLink = "http://blabla.com/gtahatj15/file_name_here.exe"
Local $sFile = StringTrimLeft($sLink, StringInStr($sLink, "/", 0, -1))
MsgBox(0, "Result", $sFile)

RegExp is not required in a lot of places but it comes in handy and it's fast. In your example I actually would have used StringMid() but that's just me.

The _PathSplit UDF could've done it too.

The _PathSplit UDF could've done it too.

You don't even need the UDF, in fact I've never understood why we even have that function, perhaps just to confuse people.

$spath = "C:\Some\Path\somefile.exe"
$aPath = StringSplit($sPath, "\")
$sFile = $aPath[Ubound($aPath) -1]
MsgBox(0, "Result", $sFile)

Yeah, there are actually a few ways to do it without RegEx. I think I remember reading here somewhere that RegEx is slower than the String Functions though.

EDIT: Here's the topic I was thinking of. I suppose it may only apply to that specific situation though.

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=108355

At one time SREs were definitly slower than String functions but that isn't always the case now. I used that particular SRE in this case because I don't think the OP has related all the details as to what he wants to us just yet and If he wants what I think he does then it's a simple matter of changing the SREReplace to a simple SRE (using the same expression) to return an array.

Drudging up old posts...

Can someone help me though with Regex?

I want the same solution, but this regex: "^.*/" Would not work for a URL like this:

''https://web.company.com/Content/Tracking/PeopleReports/AsyncReportCreate.aspx?r=/Company/People%20Reports/Subscriber%20Most%20Recent%20Activity&History

As it would go to the / after the page name.

I have a lot of URLs like this and I really just want to strip the "page.aspx" out of it.

Can someone help? This is for an Autoit script, but I'd prefer a regex statement in case I need to use it in Notepad++ or some other editor.

Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: I think I could get it if I searched for the .aspx with a regex lookbehind argument using the W to select by words.... But that's as far as I get cause it's beyond my regex abilities.

Dr.Chi,

This should do the trick: :D

$sURL = "https://web.company.com/Content/Tracking/PeopleReports/AsyncReportCreate.aspx?r=/Company/People%20Reports/Subscriber%20Most%20Recent%20Activity&History"

$sExtract = StringRegExpReplace($sURL, "(?i).*/(.*.aspx).*", "$1")

MsgBox(0, "", $sExtract)

(?i)       - Case insensitive
.*/       - As much as you can get until you find a / followed by
(.*.aspx) - a number of character followed by .aspx - the brackets mean we capture this group
.*         - and then the rest of the string

$1         - Replace it all with the captured group

Because the matches are greedy by default, we find the final / just before the page name in the first section. :rip:

Try it out and see if it works for you - although George will doubtless be along with a better one in a while if you want to wait! :oops:

Nothing really wrong with that one although I would have used .+ inside the capture instead of .* and you don't have to escape "/" since it has no special meaning anyway.
