Extracting just the filename and extension from a full path?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

is it possible to extract just the filename and extension from a full file path (including the file itself)?

If so, how is this done?

Thanks in advance Posted Image

Yes, _Pathsplit does what you need: "Splits a path into the drive, directory, file name and file extension parts"

For the exact syntax please see the help file.

nf67,

Or you can use these SREs from Malkey to get various parts of the path directly: :mellow:

Local $sFile = "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.chm"

; Drive letter -                                     Example returns     "C"
Local $sDrive = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, ":.*$", "")

; Full Path with backslash -                         Example returns     "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\"
Local $sPath = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.*\\)(.*)", "\1")

; Full Path without backslash -                     Example returns     "C:\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3"
Local $sPathExDr = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.:)(\\.*\\)(.*$)", "\2")

; Full Path w/0 backslashes, nor drive letter -     Example returns     "\Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3\"
Local $sPathExDrBSs = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.:\\)(.*)(\\.*$)", "\2")

; Path w/o backslash, not drive letter: -             Example returns     "Program Files\Another Dir\AutoIt3"
Local $sPathExBS = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "(^.*)\\(.*)", "\1")

; File name with ext -                                 Example returns     "AutoIt3.chm"
Local $sFilName = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\\", "")

; File name w/0 ext -                                 Example returns     "AutoIt3"
Local $sFilenameExExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\\|\..*$", "")

; Dot Extenstion -                                     Example returns     ".chm"
Local $sDotExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\.", ".$1")

; Extenstion -                                         Example returns     "chm"
Local $sExt = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\.", "")

MsgBox(0, "Path File Name Parts", _
        "Drive             " & @TAB & $sDrive & @CRLF & _
        "Path              " & @TAB & $sPath & @CRLF & _
        "Path w/o backslash" & @TAB & $sPathExBS & @CRLF & _
        "Path w/o Drv:     " & @TAB & $sPathExDr & @CRLF & _
        "Path w/o Drv or \'s" & @TAB & $sPathExDrBSs & @CRLF & _
        "File Name         " & @TAB & $sFilName & @CRLF & _
        "File Name w/o Ext " & @TAB & $sFilenameExExt & @CRLF & _
        "Dot Extension     " & @TAB & $sDotExt & @CRLF & _
        "Extension         " & @TAB & $sExt & @CRLF)
