Regular Expression Hassles

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am working on making a bot (I realize this is taboo around here) for my job. I only need assistance with setting up a functional Regular Expression to pull out specific pieces of a wall of text.

Long story short it goes to a website, pulls data about a customer, and pastes it into a chat room for my co-workers, however no one wants to see a HUGE wall of text everytime someone calls for help.

Below is an example of the text it will pull. I've edited out any sensitive information.

I need it to pull the full MAC address, the entire "Current Device Status" line and then the bootfile line.

Now it always shows up in this order and always has each part on it's own line. It won't need to tell me if its green grey or yellow though.

 

The main issue with Regular Expressions is that I don't know of a way to have it copy an entire line of text into an array.

 

Thanks in advance guys!

Zeerti,

 

I am working on making a bot (I realize this is taboo around here) for my job

There is absolutely no problem with scripts relating to what you want to do. But the word "bot" is usually shorthand for "gamebot", which is most definitely out of bounds, so I would suggest in future not using that descriptor when posting. ;)

Ah I see what you are getting at. Well that makes sense and in the future I'll avoid it!

Since we all know you're a programming genius... happen to know how to resolve my regular expression issue? :D

Zeerti,

 

Since we all know you're a programming genius

Far from it - and certainly not when it comes to SREs. :wacko:

If no SRE guru has given you a solution by then, I will certainly take a look tomorrow morning - but now it is time for bed. ;)

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sData = ClipGet() ; I just copied your sample and pasted to the clipboard.
Local $aSRE = StringRegExp($sData & @CRLF, '(?m)^(\S*)\h*(\V*)', 3) ; This will create an array like...
#cs
    $aSRE[0] = colour
    $aSRE[1] = line of text
    $aSRE[2] = colour
    $aSRE[3] = line of text
    ....
#ce
_ArrayDisplay($aSRE)

Could you give me an example of after please, as I have your before. You mention what you want, but I need to visually see it. Thanks.

Maybe something like this

(?is)(V*ww:ww:ww:ww:wwV*).*?rn(V*Current Device StatusV*).*?rn(V*Modem Boot FileV*)

Can you run me through what each of those parts in the SRE are doing? I would like to understand it instead of bandaiding it :) Most appreciated regardless, I'll have to test this when I get home tonight.

-edit-

or a link that would explain what each of those parts is doing. I hate not knowing why my code is doing what it's doing :)

Here is the code, had to censor a few things, but this is it basically. 
 
You'll notice a lot of mouse clicking and movements, this is due to the very strange way they set up the website, it was the only way I could get it  to function properly without knowing the API due to my company being extremely strict on who knows it. If I could show you what it does, you guys might have a resolution, but I risk losing my job :/
