StringRegExReplace()

20 posts in this topic

hi people, please help me!

how to i make this:

For $i = 1 To $tabadd[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabadd[$i] & "f(", $tabadd[$i] & "f (")
    Next
    For $i = 1 To $tabrem[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabrem[$i] & "f(", $tabrem[$i] & "f (")
    Next
    For $i = 1 To $tabadd[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabadd[$i] & "r(", $tabadd[$i] & "r (")
    Next
    For $i = 1 To $tabrem[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabrem[$i] & "r (", $tabrem[$i] & "r (")
    Next
    For $i = 1 To $tabadd[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabadd[$i] & "e(", $tabadd[$i] & "e (")
    Next
    For $i = 1 To $tabrem[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabrem[$i] & "e(", $tabrem[$i] & "e (")
    Next
    For $i = 1 To $tabadd[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabadd[$i] & "o(", $tabadd[$i] & "o (")
    Next
    For $i = 1 To $tabrem[0]
        $sline = StringReplace($sline, $tabrem[$i] & "o(", $tabrem[$i] & "o (")
    Next

using stringregexreplace() ?

I've tried everything and I can not work = (

thanks in advance!

golfinhu,

Does what you have posted work? If so, why do you want to use an SRE instead? ;)

darkshark,

Why do people insist on using SREs for things that do not need them? ;)

In your case 2 simple lines (<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<) are all you need: :)

#Include <String.au3>

$sString = 'Server.ScriptTimeout = "60"'

$sValue = _StringBetween($sString, '"', '"') ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

ConsoleWrite($sValue[0] & @CRLF)

$sNewString = StringReplace($sString, $sValue[0], "New_Value") ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

ConsoleWrite($sNewString & @CRLF)

Melba, Melba, Melba... What are we going to do with you. _StringBetween uses regex. It doesn't have to (I would use StringMid and StringInStr), but it does (probably a reason for it too).

Mat,

The point here is that the SRE in _StringBetween is invisible to the user (and me until you pointed it out!). ;)

Too many people want to use a "sexy" SRE when a simple AutoIt commands will suffice - as in this trivial case. For a long list of items with a reasonably repeatable pattern I quite agree that an SRE is the way to go - but as GEOSoft once said to me: "One of the major problems of using SREs is deciding when NOT to use one" (or words to that effect). :)

What are we going to do with you

You are stuck with me - tough! ;)

For a single between thing (like the case above), I use:

Func _StringBetween2($sString, $sStart, $sEnd, $iCase = 0)
    $iStart = StringInStr($sString, $sStart, $iCase) + 1
    $iEnd  = StringInStr($sString, $sEnd, $iCase, -1)

    Return StringMid($sString, $iStart, $iEnd - $iStart)
EndFunc

Although it is usually messier than that and all on one line ;)

ty ppl

and...

for i replace for example

http://www.site.com

www.site.com

to

site.com

if need to put many 'stringreplace()'?

$newstring = stringreplace($string,'http://','')
$newstring = stringreplace($newstring,'www.','')

?

StringRegExReplace() is better in this case, no?

M23, That's close enough to what I said to count and it still holds.

The general rule that I use for even simple lines is, IF it can be done easily using 1 or 2 simple String*() calls then use that method. If it's more complex, use an SRE. Testing has also shown me that in simple cases the String*() methods are just a tad faster than SRE's in many cases, so there are a few variables to consider when you make that decision. In the OP's case it's such a simple SRE that would do it all, he could easily use one. He's unnecessarily using embedded loops though.

For $i = 1 To UBound($tabadd) -1
    $tabadd[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($tabAdd[$i], "(?i)([freo])\s*\(", "$1 \(")
Next

Where

(?i) means it's not case sensitive

[freo] means match any one of those characters

\s* means match zero or more spaces

\( means it must be be followed with (

Then

Replace the matching strings with the letter found in the first part followed by a space and a (

In his case I would probably opt for the SRER method because of the variables. Of course that all depends on whether or not I correctly read what he wanted to do in that mess of loops. Depending on what he is actually doing in the rest (unposted portion) of the script there may not even be a need for the outer loop. For example, if he's reading a page of text and then trying to put each line into an array element before he loops through to correct the lines then he's wasting time, he could run the SRER against the whole file at once instead.

it worked!

the more I try, I can not understand regular expressions = (, has a site with good content to recommend me? then I can study!

get it!

I'm doing a TIDY for LUA (it's also a programming language)

then, the tests i did here, i think in my case SRER fared better, and leave the code cleaner!

but thanks for the script!

You can use the PCRE toolkit in my signature to test and there are a couple of links to Regular Expression sites in the Help menu. There is also a good link in the Help file

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/pcrepattern.html

That is generally a copy of the page fron the PCRE wesite but I think it was altered a wee bit to make it more compatable with PCRE as used in AutoIt. I could be wrong there since I haven't done a text comparison of the 2 pages.

The problem with linking to sites comes in when people are not familiar with the differences between different Regular Expression engines. They all have some things in common and they all have their own little differences.

Not in any way that I can think of offhand.

You can do it with StringReplace by putting the string to replace and the replacement string into a 2 dimension array. Just loop through the array.

You can also use multidimensional arrays with StringRegExpReplace like so...

#include <Array.au3>
Local $Text = 'ABC', $Result, $Header
Local $Array[3][2] = [['A', '"a replaced"'], ['B', '"b replaced"'], ['C', '"c replaced"']]
_Arraydisplay($Array, 'Starting Text')
For $i = 0 To UBound($Array) - 1
    $Header = 'Pass ' & $i + 1 & ' = '
    $Result &= $Header & StringRegExpReplace($Text, $Array[$i][0], $Array[$i][1]) & @LF
Next
MsgBox(32, '', $Result)
It does not fulfill your needs exactly, but it may help down the road

You should show us exactly what you want returned from that string. I'm not sure if I understand what you want here. Maybe this?

$sStr = "a1b2c3d4e5f6g7h8i9j0k1l2m3n4o5p6q7r8s9t0u1v2w3x4y5z6"
$sStr = StringRegExpReplace($sStr, ".+?([1-5]+).+", "$1")
MsgBox(0, "result, $sStr)

You can test SREs with the PCRE Toolkit in my signature.

Can the "X" in this code be a variable that changes depending on the letter that it is replacing?

Other than something like this. Nope. (until proven other wise of course.)

$sText = 'de Aap had een Noot van Mies in zijn hand'
$spattern = 'Aa(p)|No(o)t|Mi(e)s'
$sreplace = '$1$2$3'
$result = StringRegExpReplace($sText, $spattern, $sreplace)
;; $result = "de p had een o van e in zijn hand"

why not stick to using that what seems more fitting to the (apparent) job. (Creating a single RE for this seems rather painful to me.)

Func _ParseNumbers($s_Str)
    Local $s_Ret = ""
    For $i = 1 To 5
        If StringInStr($s_Str, String($i)) Then $s_Ret &= String($i)
    Next
    Return $s_Ret
EndFunc ;==>_ParseNumbers
Func _ParseNumbers($s_Str)
    Local $s_Ret = "", $aChar[5] = ['1', '2', '3', '4', '5']
    For $e In $aChar
        If StringInStr($s_Str, $e) Then $s_Ret &= $e
    Next
    Return $s_Ret
EndFunc ;==>_ParseNumbers
