Find a Charter in a String

10 posts in this topic

I am having troubles finding a character within a string

The string for an example is - Intel® Core2Duo CPU T5800 @2.00GHz

I am trying to delete everything after the "@" or even better yet, save the end of the string to another variable (without the @)

Thanks for the Help

$test="Intel® Core™2Duo CPU T5800 @2.00GHz"
$right=StringInStr($test,"@")
$trimleft=StringTrimLeft($test,Int($right))
MsgBox(0,"",$trimleft)
MsgBox(0,"",$right)

*edit*

the variable $right tells you how many characters in the @ symbol is

after cutting off the first number of characters as returned by $right, what is left is only what is after the @ as displayed by $trimleft

it should be very easy to get the script to define the $test variable with whatever data you need.

Hello zsKengren,

First, Welcome to the AutoIt Forums :x

I have a couple ideas for you, the second option is a bit rough, and I am sure there is a better way, however this should give you an idea to get started:

$string = 'Intel® Core™2Duo CPU T5800 @2.00GHz'

;If you know its going to be exactly @2.00GHz
$new_String = StringTrimRight($string,9)
MsgBox(0,'String Is:',$new_String)

;If you need to find the @ symbol, and remove it and everything after it.
$char_count = 0
While 1
    If StringLeft(StringTrimLeft($string,$char_count),1) = '@' Then
        $new_string = StringLeft($string,$char_count)
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
    $char_count += 1
WEnd
MsgBox(0,'String Is:',$new_String)

Edit: Kaotkbliss' example is a cleaner approach to my second example which does the same thing. Posted Image I knew there was a better way, However I did'nt see his while our posts crossed.

$x=StringSplit('Intel® Core™2Duo CPU T5800 @2.00GHz','@',2)
$part1=$x[0]
$part2=$x[1]
;---------------------------------
$x=StringRegExp('Intel® Core™2Duo CPU T5800 @2.00GHz',"(.*?)@(.*)",1)
$part1=$x[0]
$part2=$x[1]

I have this string:

StringInStr
Checks if a string contains a given substring.
StringInStr ( "string", "substring" [, casesense [, occurrence [, start [, count]]]] )
 
Parameters
string The string to evaluate. 
substring The substring to search for. 
casesense [optional] Flag to indicate if the operations should be case sensitive.
0 = not case sensitive, using the user's locale (default)
1 = case sensitive
2 = not case sensitive, using a basic/faster comparison 
occurrence [optional] Which occurrence of the substring to find in the string. Use a negative occurrence to search from the right side. The default value is 1 (finds first occurrence). 
start [optional] The starting position of the search. 
count [optional] The number of characters to search. This effectively limits the search to a portion of the full string. See remarks.

I want to separate the substring between "0 = not case sensitive" and "using a basic/faster comparison ", that is this section:

0 = not case sensitive, using the user's locale (default)
1 = case sensitive
2 = not case sensitive, using a basic/faster comparison

I used this code to find "0 = not case sensitive" but don't success:

;save first string in file.txt
Global $x, $file
$file=FileOpen("file.txt", 0)
$x=StringInStr($file, "0 = not case sensitive")
MsgBox(0,"1",$x)

Please help me.

Thank all very much.

Try this.

Global $x, $file
$file=FileOpen("file.txt", 0)
Global $Text = FileRead($file)
$x=StringInStr($Text, "0 = not case sensitive")
MsgBox(0,"1",$x)

EDIT: Unicode and forum tags don't mix.

It work, thank you very much.

Can you give me the code to separate the substring between "0 = not case sensitive" and "using a basic/faster comparison " ?
