StringRegExp Pattern Help

Recommended Posts

Ned

Could someone make a pattern for this. Been testing out various patterns for hours.

String

<div class="profName"><a href="ShowRatings.jsp?tid=1632499">Abaquita, Edwin</a></div>

My Pattern

(?<=\QShowRatings.jsp?tid=\E).*(?=\Q</a></div>\E)

I just need the name (Abaquita, Edwin). The problem with my pattern is the link number (1632499) changes with every name and there are multiple names on a page, also the number of digits varies with each name.

Thank you in advance.

Make the pattern

<a\s+href="ShowRatings.jsp\?tid=[^>]+>(.*)</a>\s*</div>

and you should get the name part as capture #1

      This is a program that I made to help my self learn better regular expressions.
      There are a lot of other programs/website with the similar functions.
      But the main advantage of this program is that you don't have to click a button after every changes.
      The program detected changes and react on it.
      Function:
      Match Match of arrays Match and replace Load source data from website Load source data from a website with GET/POST Load text data from file Clear fields Export and Import settings (you can finish the expression a other time, just export/import it) Cheat sheet Generate AutoIt code The source code is not difficult and I think most user will understand it.
      In the zip file there are 2 export files (POST and a reg back example), you can drag and drop these files on the gui to import them.
      Download Regex Toolkit Regex toolkit.zip (Sourcode, exmaple and exe file)
      EDIT: Updated to version V1.2.0
      Changes are:
      Expand and collapse of the cheat sheet (Thanks to Melba23 for the Guiextender UDF) Usefull regular expressions websites links included in the program Text data update time EDIT: Updated to version V1.3.0
      Changes are:
       Automatic generate AutoIt code  Icons on the tab  Few minor bug fixes EDIT: Updated to version V1.4.0
      Changes are:
      Link to AutoIt regex helpfile If the regular expression has a error than the text becomes red Option Offset with Match and array of Matches Option Count with Match and replace Some small minor bug fixed EDIT: Updated to version V1.4.1
      Changes are:
      Small bug in "create AutoIt" code fixed

      argh, pulling my hair out.
      considering this post: 
       
      say for a string = "03a", how can I strip out the leading 0 and the a.
      I have tried:
      $new = StringRegExpReplace($string, '[^1-9][^0-9]', '')
       
      and various combinations:
      ^0+[^0-9]
      [^[:digit:]]
      "[^0].*"
      "^0*(d+)"
       
      I'm going loopy!

      So I have this pattern: 
      ^(?:(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+):(\d+))$ And I'm expecting (depending on input) to get a 1, 2 or 3 index array (or @error for invalid input).
      But instead I get this:
      #include <Debug.au3> Func Test($String) _DebugArrayDisplay(StringRegExp($String, '^(?:(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+):(\d+))$', 1)) EndFunc Test('10') ; Results (normal, expected): ; Row 0|10 Test('10:20') ; Results (extra blank index): ; Row 0| ; Row 1|10 ; Row 2|20 Test('10:20:30') ; Results (three blank indices): ; Row 0| ; Row 1| ; Row 2| ; Row 3|10 ; Row 4|20 ; Row 5|30 Is this normal? Should I just code around it, or is there a better way to do what I'm looking for?
      I also tried reversing my regex, but it was even uglier results:
      #include <Debug.au3> Func Test($String) _DebugArrayDisplay(StringRegExp($String, '^(?:(\d+):(\d+):(\d+))|(\d+):(\d+)|(\d+)$', 1)) EndFunc Test('10') ; Results (yuck): ; Row 0| ; Row 1| ; Row 2| ; Row 3| ; Row 4| ; Row 5|10 Test('10:20') ; Results (slightly better): ; Row 0| ; Row 1| ; Row 2| ; Row 3|10 ; Row 4|20 Test('10:20:30') ; Results (nice): ; Row 0|10 ; Row 1|20 ; Row 2|30

      Hi,
      I want to add any needed conditions to the StringRegExp command so it can pull out only  "File.au3", "WinAPIFiles.au3", "Test.bmp" into the array
      #include <FileConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include 'WinAPIFiles.au3' #include "File.au3" ; Script Start - Add your code below here Local $bFileInstall = False ; Change to True and ammend the file paths accordingly. ; This will install the file C:\Test.bmp to the script location. If $bFileInstall Then FileInstall("C:\Test.bmp", @ScriptDir & "\Test.bmp") $sFile = FileRead(@ScriptFullPath) $aResults = StringRegExp($sFile, "(?i)(FileInstall\s*|include\s*)(.*)", 3) _ArrayDisplay($aResults) Thanks In Advance
