Help with regular Expression for getting File Basename

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

i actualley try a quiet simple thing.

From a given path like "c:\temp\test.doc"

i like to extract only the File BaseName "test" without the extension.

I there an Macro i can use. I found StringRegExpReplace(). Pherhaps you know how to use it.

i tried this so far:

$filebasename = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, '^.*\\', '')

$filebasename = StringRegExpReplace($Font, '\.[^.]*\Z', '')

This seems to work. is there an easier way ??

badzox,

I use this SRE to get the file name without the extension:

$sName = StringRegExpReplace($sFile, "^.*\\|\..*$", "")

Not sure it is any easier, but it is proven to work. :graduated:

@Melba, if the final value has 2 decimals, then it will fail to return the right data.

The only real thing to do is to assume that the last characters after the decimal are the extension, then this should work:

StringRegExpReplace("test", "(.*?[\\/])*(.*?)((?:\.\w+\z|\z))", "$2")

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Reading it quickly this should also work

$s_Test = "C:\some\folder\some.file.jpeg2"
$s_Rtn = StringRegExpReplace($s_Test, "^.+\\(.+)\.\w{1,5}$", "$1")

Of course I may have missed something.

      I like and have been using TeraCopy, a third party program, for many years. Mostly it is a great program, but it does have some issues. On Windows XP for instance, Thumbs.db files could often hold up a copy or move process until the user manually responded to the error prompt. Some other issues I discuss below.
      PLEASE NOTE - I am not related to or affiliated in any way with the 3rd party TeraCopy program developers.
      ALSO NOTE - I myself have only tested TeraCopy Cure at this point, on Windows 7 (32 bit), and only with the free version of TeraCopy 2.27.
      This program, TeraCopy Cure, is related to another one of my TeraCopy assistant programs, TeraCopy Timer, but aims at being simpler and quicker to use ... if lacking its more advanced features.
      TeraCopy Cure is a frontend for TeraCopy and sets out to make up for its flaws and limitations.
      One of those flaws is queuing order, and the limitation relates to a same destination issue.
      You would think that queue order would be the same as add order, but that is not the case, and if you are doing a mix of COPY and MOVE then the COPY process could easily fail. It could fail with some source items, even if the  COPY process has already started before the same source MOVE process begins ... especially if the destination folder is on the source drive ... only the currently copying file is locked to that process.
      If you drag and drop another source for a same destination as an existing or impending COPY or MOVE process, then usually TeraCopy nicely adds it for you to that existing job. However, you might wish to avoid that, or it might occur during the testing phase of that active process, and then not be properly processed etc. But you are not given a choice and it just gets added.
       
           
      HOW TO USE
      See the right-click menu of the 'Batch List' (lowest field) and the right-click menu of the Tree field, for some useful options.
      (1) If desired, enable 'Auto Start'. NOTE - Even if enabled, this can be bypassed.
      (2) Set the destination folder, either by browsing on the tree or by dragging a folder to the Destination input field or label. Right-clicking on a folder in Explorer will also work, if enabled. The destination folder path will also show in the Tree if that right-click option is enabled.
      (3) Then drag & drop source file or folder onto one of three five areas - Folder (Drive) Tree field, or COPY or MOVE buttons ... this now also includes the source input and label.
      NOTE - If the Folder (Drive) Tree field is used, then you will additionally need to click either the COPY or MOVE button, to have that job added to the Batch List ... but this avoids 'Auto Start' if it is enabled. Drag & dropping to the buttons instead, saves on clicking, but starts the first job etc immediately if 'Auto Start' is enabled.
      (4) If needed and ready, click the START button to run the first job and those that follow.
      More information is included in program and in the NOTES etc sections below.
         
      WARNING - Depending on the amount of content on your destination drive, and folder level depth, and the speed of your PC, display of the full path in the Folder (Drive) Tree can take a while to show ... if you have that (right-click) option enabled ... it isn't by default. I found this feature quite tricky to get right, and I'm still not 100% sure it is now full-proof.

      Hi folks, 
      Thank you so much in advance for your help!  I've been using AUTOIT for manipulating gcode.  So far I've just worked through the excellent help examples and although I'm sure the resulting code is clumsy it has functioned  
      However now I'm trying to improve and advance things and I've stumbled across REGEX.. and I'm a bit stuck.  What I would like to be able to do is to 'move'/'transform' the gcode in a file and re-write it to a new file.  I only need to move it in one direction(X).  At the heart of this I need a script to extract all the X values and then ADD or SUBTRACT an adjustment factor to transform and rewrite the code accordingly.
      So far using an example script and an example input -
      Func Test2()
      Local $iMove = -4
          Local $sInput = '"G1 X45.036 Y6.934 F7800.000 G1 Z0.600 F7800.000 G1 F900 G1 X48.036 Y1.076 E0.58925"'
          Local $sOutput = StringRegExpReplace($sInput, '(?<=[X])\d+.\d+', '\0')
          Display($sInput, $sOutput)
      EndFunc   ;==>Test2
      This identifies the correct values i.e 45.036 and 48.036 but is there a way to dyamically adjust them before they are replaced, by for example a factor of -4 ($iMove above).  So far I can't seem to do math on the '\0' value i.e '\0'+ -4 ?
      Many thanks for your time and expertise!

      i am trying to get number from string using this code :
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach ("Edu.corner") Local $aName = "Student name & Code:", $iaName = "0" Local $oTds = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "td") For $oTd In $oTds If $oTd.InnerText = $aName Then $iaName = $oTd.NextElementSibling.InnerText $iGet = StringRegExpReplace($iaName, "\D", "") EndIf Next MsgBox(0, "", $iGet) it was get number like 52503058
      But, I want to get only student code 5250. (Different student have different code, sometime its 3 digits, Sometime 4)

      <NEWBIE ALERT>
      Is it possible to unzip a zip file in Autoit without using a dll!
      My script downloads a zip file to a temporary directory (successfully) and it must be unzipped to (Or moved to after unzip) another a folder which just happens to be
      @scriptdir & "file.exe" Thanks in advance
