Reorganize StringRegExp()

Recommended Posts



Is it possible to adjust the way regular expressions working in AutoIt?

It will be very nice if we could write:

if StringRegExp($sLine, "Some text (\d+)") Then MsgBox(0, "", $LastMatch[0])

So, I propose special variable(array) in AutoIt, that will consists of last matches done with StringRegExp()

I could be named $LastMatch[x] or something shorter.

Well if StringRegExp return array (look at [, flag ] in felp file for command) you can use msgbox $LastMatch[$LastMatch[0]]

_ArrayInsert($LastMatch, 0, UBound($LastMatch))

That shud put nuber of lines from array in first array [0] if its not already there that is :D

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.

If you need the results, you have to write 2 lines, thats not too much :D And it is cleaner code.

$aResults = StringRegExp("test", "s", 1)
If Not @error Then MsgBox(0, '', $aResults[0])
