Regex and special characters

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to have a regex filter to catch (for removal) all "special" nonstandard characters (excluding spaces and decimals). That is to say, [^a-zA-Z\s\.0-9]. I want this to be able to get rid of things such as "!@#$%..." but also (main focus) the characters like ™ and the copyright symbol also. I am having trouble finding a way of doing this without declaring the hex codes for each one.

Do you have an example of a text file?

It's easier to try regex with an existing text!

$sStr = ""
For $i = 32 To 255
    $sStr &= Chr($i)
Next
$sStr &= @CRLF & @CRLF & StringRegExpReplace($sStr, "(?i)[^a-z0-9\s]", "")
MsgBox(0, "Result", $sStr)

Not so much. A rather easy regex as a matter of fact. All it says is ignore everything within the [ and ] (group) but all else should be replaced with an empty string.
