StringRegExp help...

4 posts in this topic

For all you regexp guru's, I have a slight problem. I have this code that looks at a line in a text file and finds the word "Connection" and then grabs the number next to it. However if there is no number it still grabs the next letter in the line which also happens to be a number I don't want. how can this code be changed so that it will only look up to 1 space. If there is no number after 1 space then return nothing. This is what I have.

StringRegExp($line, "(?U)Connection\h+(\H+)\h", 3)

EndFuncAutoIt is the shiznit. I love it.

StringRegExp($line, "(?i)(?:Connection)(?:\h)([0-9]*)", 3)

It would help if you gave a sample of working/nonworking strings.

from helpfile + Repeat the previous character, set or group 1 or more times. Equivalent to {1,}

StringRegExp($line, "(?i)Connectionh(d+)h*", 3)

Test with @Error to see if it returned anything.
