_GetDateInString() - find date/time in a string using a date format notation (DD Mon YYYY hh:mm)

Recommended Posts

GreenCan

I am currently working on a project in which I have to find timestamps in multiple formated patterns.

The idea is to search time stamps in log files.

If successful _GetDateInString() will returns a timestamp in YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss

Example:

_GetDateInString("...Process Last Run 17 JUN at 05:15...", "DD Mon at hh:mm")

will return 2014/06/17 05:15:00

Formats tested:
- DDMonYY hh:mm:ss  (matches dates like 30May14 03:59:59)
- DD Mon YYYY hh:mm   - Mon, DD YYYY hh:mm:ss   - Mon, D YYYY hh:mm:ss   - DD Mon at hh:mm
- DMonYY hh:mm:ss     - DMon hh:mm:ss           - DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm       - DD-MM-YYYY  hh:mm
- DDMMYYYY hh:mm      - DD/MM hh:mm             - MM.DD.YYYY  hh:mm      - YYYYDDMM  hh:mm
- YYYYMMDD - hh:mm    - DD.MM  hh:mm            - D/M/YYYY hh:mm         - D.M.YYYY hh:mm
- M.D.YY h:mm:ss      - M.D.YY hh:mm            - M.D.YY  hh:mm          - M.D.YYYY h:mm:ss
- M.D.YYYY  h:mm:ss   - M.D at  h:mm:ss        

and many other formats...

      Hi, for a script of mine, I wish to keep a time frame on till how the program will work.. basically, I want the program to read the date and if the read date < 'a particular date', the program continues, else it exit. I don't want to read the time from the computer as the program can be fooled by resetting the pc time. is there a way to read time from internet - so that the user cannot fool the program by date reset? thanks

      So what i need is a function that I pass a starting date into and it counts up to the current date. Example:
      2009-05-30
      2009-05-31
      2009-06-01
      ...
      2018-06-18
      How would I do that? I found the Date.au3 in the includes but I can't find anything close to a time object like I'm used to working with in Java. I just need some $date = setDate(2009-05-30) and from there I could just add a day every time. I need this to be in the very format I stated earlier and from what I can see everytime related to date and time is automatically changed to my german locale.
      €: I already tried setDate but instead it changed my PCs clock. Not quite what i was looking for

      So I get:
      $aMatch[0] Date(1499295600000)   this is supposed to be 06 Jul 2017
      $aMatch[0] Date(1483574400000)  this is supposed to be 05 Jan 2017
      does anybody know the formula to calculate the date from the large number?  It doesn't seem to be anything to do with DateToDayValue.
      thanks in advance.

      I am taking a Date & Time and splitting them using _DateTimeSplit, so that I can create a filename in the format: YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS.jpg.  The only issue is that if the month, or day, is a two-digit number that begins with a zero (so less than 10), then the month, or day, is formatted as a single-digit number.  Suggestions on how to accomplish this?
      Example:
      20180101 becomes 2018, 1, 1
      20180303 becomes 2018, 3, 3
      20180505 becomes 2018, 5, 5
      20180606 becomes 2018, 6, 6
      20180909 becomes 2018, 9, 9
      What I want:
      20180101 becomes 2018, 01, 01
      20180303 becomes 2018, 03, 03
      20180505 becomes 2018, 05, 05
      20180606 becomes 2018, 06, 06
      20180909 becomes 2018, 09, 09
      Func _CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat = "2018/01/02 10:29:39") Local $aMyDate, $aMyTime, $sNewImageFileName _DateTimeSplit($sDateThatWasChangedIntoDateTimeFormat, $aMyDate, $aMyTime) _ArrayDisplay($aMyDate) _ArrayDisplay($aMyTime) ;This will become file name $sNewImageFileName = $aMyDate[1] & $aMyDate[2] & $aMyDate[3] & "_" & $aMyTime[1] & $aMyTime[2] & $aMyTime[3] & ".jpg" ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $sNewImageFileName = ' & $sNewImageFileName & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console EndFunc ;==>_CreateFileNameFromDateTimeFormat
