Converting 4 Lines of JS with RegEx to AutoIT

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

The script below is used to do some grammar cleanup for Persian. I replaced Persian words with Eng. I'm trying to write this in AutoIT but I can't really understand it!

var verbs = "(verbOne|verbTwo|verbThree|verbFour|verbFive|verbSix|verbSeven|verbEight)";
var hoohbbhbbhbb = "(preVerbOne|preVerbTwo)" + verbs + "(postVerbOne|postVerbTwo|postVerbThree|postVerbFour|postVerbFive|postVerbSix)"
var re = new RegExp(hoohbbhbbhbb, "g");
s=s.replace (re, '$1\u200c$2$3');

I know simple RegEx and this is very complicated for me.

Could someone help me with this please?

The character "u200c" is ChrW(8204) aka ZWNJ in AutoIT.

Thank you in advance.

Example

$sText = "preVerbOneverbOnepostVerbOne"

$verbs = "(verbOne|verbTwo|verbThree|verbFour|verbFive|verbSix|verbSeven|verbEight)";

$hoohbbhbbhbb = "(preVerbOne|preVerbTwo)" & $verbs & "(postVerbOne|postVerbTwo|postVerbThree|postVerbFour|postVerbFive|postVerbSix)"

$s = StringRegExpReplace($sText, $hoohbbhbbhbb, '$1' & ChrW(8204) & '$2$3');

MsgBox(0, 0, $s)

Ask if you have any queries.

Regards :)

Yes, $n (or n) with n numeric refers to the nth capturing group in the pattern. Note that ZWNJ is -as you said- ChrW(8204) or ChrW(0x200C).This way the spacing should be correct in Persian.

PhoenixXL,

ChrW(8025) is GREEK CAPITAL LETTER UPSILON WITH DASIA, not exactly what the OP needs.

Done
