Live Regex

Recommended Posts

Very simple and straight forward, this a small program that lets you play with AutoIt regex matches live. Regex up to, text to match on the left and you'll see all the matches on the right.

Written to scratch my own itch, but maybe someone else will have use for it too?

Version 0.1, file attached

Who knows.. I might make a 0.2 with options and stuff at some point.

That's a handy tool for those of us trying to get a handle on Regex.

It took me a couple of tries to get it operating (e.g., with quotes or not), so I thought I would post this example using a Regex pattern that was posted today ("StringTrim vs Regex").

Thanks for providing your script.

That's why I made it, because I was having issues with AutoIt regex, and got annoyed over having to modify, run, test, close, over and over again, with this tool you can just edit your regex and it's evaluated live.

Glad you like it!

      Is there a way to output the regex matches into a file?
      I have a script to compare two files and check for regex matches.
      I want to output the matching regex of 'testexample.txt' to another file.
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> $Read = FileReadToArray("C:\Users\admin\Documents\testexample.txt") $Dictionary = FileReadToArray("C:\Users\admin\Documents\example.txt") For $p = 0 To UBound($Dictionary) - 1 Step 1 $pattern = $Dictionary[$p] For $i = 0 To UBound($Read) - 1 Step 1 $regex = $Read[$i] If StringRegExp($regex, $pattern, 0) Then MsgBox(0, "ResultsPass", "The string is in the file, highlighted strings: " ) Else MsgBox(0, "ResultsFail", "The string isn't in the file.") EndIf Next Next

      Hello,
      I need some help to parse the Green highlighted value with from below text:
      RESISTOR  THICK FILM 4.64K ±1% 1/4W ±100PPM/°C 1206 SMT
      RESISTOR  THICK FILM 3.83K ±1% 1/4W ±100PPM/°C 1206 SMT
      RESISTOR CARBON FILM 22K ±10% 1/2W AXIAL THT
      RESISTOR  WIREWOUND  22 ±5% 3W ±30PPM/°C AXIAL THT
      RESISTOR  METAL OXIDE 4.7K ±5% 2 W ±300PPM/°C AXIAL THT
      RESISTOR  THICK FILM 0   1/8W  0805 SMT
      I am using positive look behind.:
      (?<=FILM|WOUND|OXIDE).+ Can only pull this off:
      4.64K ±1% 1/4W ±100PPM/°C 1206 SMT 3.83K ±1% 1/4W ±100PPM/°C 1206 SMT 22K ±10% 1/2W AXIAL THT  22 ±5% 3W ±30PPM/°C AXIAL THT 4.7K ±5% 2 W ±300PPM/°C AXIAL THT 0   1/8W  0805 SMT I'm trying the \b word boundary to no avail at this point. Appreciate if anyone would guide me on this?

      Im creating a code that will work in this sequence:
      1. Copy the text (question) in one atea of the screen
      2. Catch the 2 strings (number)
      3. Multiply the 2 strings ( $1*$2)
      4. Click the next area to put the answer
      5. Paste the answer
       
      This is my code
       
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 479, 802, 3, 1) ;Clicking all of the text
      Send("^c") 
      $x = StringRegExpReplace(ClipGet(), 'What is (\d*) x (\d*) \?$', "$1*$2")
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 480, 844, 1, 1)
      ClipPut($x)
      Send("^v")
       
      However the output is this
      $1*$2
       
      How can I make it solve itself? Because I tried this code:
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 479, 802, 3, 1) ;Clicking all of the text
      Send("^c")
      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 480, 844, 1, 1) $x = Execute(StringRegExpReplace(ClipGet(), 'What is (\d*) x (\d*) \?$', "$1*$2"))
      ClipPut($x)
      Send("^v")
      Output is just blank text

      I have an XML file and every time there are three lines in a row with only <null/> in them, i want to insert a fourth line with <null/>.   Each line starts with 3 white spaces, followed by <null/> and ends with a white space followed by CR LF.   The presence of the three lines as described is unique to the points where I want to insert a line in this document.
       I'm trying to figure out how to apply the repeating part of a regex  {1,4} but apply it to this whole segment. 
      So far I have the below which picks up an individual line ok:
      ^\s{3}<null/>\s\r\n I tried wrapping it all in braces () then adding {3} but I'm obviously getting something wrong. 
      Attached is a section from the xml file with a block of nulls that should be matched if anyone would like to have a look.

      I am trying to search in a web browser dates XX/XX/XXXX that are also links. I want to click them after and remove them from the array. This is all I have so far. Nothing shows up. What am I doing wrong?
      ControlFocus ("Customer Center", "", "")
      Local $aArray = StringRegExp('(..)/(..)/(....)', '(..)/(..)/(....)', $STR_REGEXPARRAYFULLMATCH)
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
          MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "RegExp Test with Option 2 - " & $i, $aArray[$i])
      Next
