RegEx Issues

7 posts in this topic

I am having some issues with RegEx processing some inf files.

Here is the data im working with...

Signature="$WINDOWS NT$"
Class=SCSIAdapter
ClassGUID={4D36E97B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Provider=%HP%
DriverVer=03/20/2013,8.0.4.0

And Here are some of my tests (Return an array of arrays) ...

(.+)(?:\s+)?\=(?:\s+)?(.+)((?:\s+)?,(?:\s+)?(.+))?

Result:

Signaure|"$WINDOWS_NT$"

Class|SCSIAdapter

ClassGUID|{4D36E97B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Provider|%HP%
DriverVer|03/20/2013,8.0.4.0
(.+)(?:\s+)?\=(?:\s+)?(.+)(?:\s+)?,(?:\s+)?(.+)
Result:
DriverVer|03/20/2013|8.0.4.0
(.+)(?:\s+)?\=(?:\s+)?(?:"?(.+)"?)(?:(?:\s+)?;.+)?

Result:

Signaure|$WINDOWS_NT$"

Class|SCSIAdapter

ClassGUID|{4D36E97B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Provider|%HP%
DriverVer|03/20/2013,8.0.4.0
 

 

Target Result:

Signaure|$WINDOWS_NT$

Class|SCSIAdapter

ClassGUID|{4D36E97B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Provider|HP
DriverVer|03/20/2013,8.0.4.0
 
Basically, Remove all quotes, split commas, and strip comments
 

Any ideas?

You could probably use the INI file functions on an INF file, they're the same file format.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Tried that, but I could not get them to work the way i needed, and I need them to be able to process an INF from memory. I tried other udf already made for that but they fail on certain ones, so im making my own.

Have you tried using

IniReadSection
StringReplace

I know you said you tried that, but this seems like it would be very easy to pull each section, then look through the 2d array looking for quotes and commas. No problem if you have tried this, just wanted to throw my 2 cents in. ;)

The exactly expected result is not clear, maybe this ?

#include <Array.au3>

$str = 'Signature="$WINDOWS NT$"' & @crlf & _
        'Class=SCSIAdapter' & @crlf & _
        'ClassGUID={4D36E97B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}' & @crlf & _
        'Provider=%HP%' & @crlf & _
        'DriverVer=03/20/2013,8.0.4.0'

$res = StringRegExp($str, '(.+)="?([^",\r\n]+),?([^"\r\n]+)?', 4)
For $i = 0 To UBound($res) - 1
    $a = $res[$i]
    _ArrayDisplay($a)
Next

That helps.

What about a string like this?

DiskId1 = "Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio. Installation Disk #1" ; {PlaceHolder="High Definition Audio"}

Just trying to extract DiskId1|Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio. Installation Disk #1

$res = StringRegExp($str, '(.+?)\s*=\s*"?([^",\r\n]+),?([^"\r\n]+)?.*', 4)

I previously used the provided sample string

Are there other cases not mentioned yet ?
