Regular expressions, I hate them, seriously  :ranting:

I have a MAC address in this format:

"A2B3B56B7C3A"

And I would like to change it in:

"A2-B3-B5-6B-7C-3A"

The MAC address can be a little longer than that one, but we are sure that the total digit number is an even number.

I've tried a lot of patterns but I have not tried the right one.

This is the closest one I've tried but the output shows a final hyphen (I could cut it through StringTrimLeft but I would like to do it using just RegEx).

ConsoleWrite(StringRegExpReplace("A2B3B56B7C3A", "(.{2})", "$1-"))

I don't understand why this pattern doesn't work :(

ConsoleWrite(StringRegExpReplace("A2B3B56B7C3A", "^(?:.{2})(.{2})+?", "-$1"))

Thanks in advance  ^_^

Two steps, but could you will find someone widdle it down to 1:

$string = "A2B3B56B7C3A"
$a = StringRegExp($string,"(\w{2,2})",3)
$mac = _ArrayToString($a,"-")
ConsoleWrite($mac & @CRLF)

I have no idea why _ArraytoString is byref...let's remove that:

$string = "A2B3B56B7C3A"
$mac = _ArrayToString2(StringRegExp($string,"(\w{2,2})",3),"-")
ConsoleWrite($mac & @CRLF)


Func _ArrayToString2($avArray, $sDelim = "|", $iStart = 0, $iEnd = 0)
    If Not IsArray($avArray) Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
    If UBound($avArray, 0) <> 1 Then Return SetError(3, 0, "")

    Local $sResult, $iUBound = UBound($avArray) - 1

    ; Bounds checking
    If $iEnd < 1 Or $iEnd > $iUBound Then $iEnd = $iUBound
    If $iStart < 0 Then $iStart = 0
    If $iStart > $iEnd Then Return SetError(2, 0, "")

    ; Combine
    For $i = $iStart To $iEnd
        $sResult &= $avArray[$i] & $sDelim
    Next

    Return StringTrimRight($sResult, StringLen($sDelim))
EndFunc   ;==>_ArrayToString

The output for the string is the same, but the pattern is not.  Although {2} and {2,2} is the same.

Like I said, someone will get it down to one function.  Not me.

You can also use this one based on an example (from Malkey ? not sure) to insert the hyphens in the righ places

Msgbox(0,"", StringRegExpReplace("A2B3Bdd56B7C3A", "..\K(?!$)", "-") )

      Hi All,
      I'd like to replace 'COMMA' with ',' for example:
      $myString = "COMMA" StringRegExpReplace($myString, 'COMMA', ',') Now I've tried escaping the ',' in various ways unsuccessfully, such as:
      '[,]'
      "[,]"
      '\,'
      [,] seems to work in the pattern, I just can't figure out how to use it in the replace, and it seems everyone online is only interested in removing/replacing commas lol.
      I also tried creating and using a variable as the replacement but also didn't work:
      $myComma = "," $myString = "COMMA" StringRegExpReplace($myString, 'COMMA', $myComma) I'm sure it's super simple if someone could point me in the right direction - thanks.

      Hi all,
      I still suck at regex as always and I need some help. According to the regex tester I normally use this should be working fine but it doesn't....
      StringRegExp($sString, "\A[1-9]+[0-9]*(\-[1-9]+[0-9]*)?,*\Z") I basically want to match:
      all numbers EXCEPT 0, but including 10, 20, etc with each number separated by a comma and allowing a "-" separated range as a value For example:
      1-5,7,10-12 I've spent a couple hours modifying it but I'm not sure where I've gone wrong. Any help would be appreciated!

      Hi!

      I need a little bit help from some RegEx experts please:
      I would make my ISN AutoIt Studio faster when generating the scripttree. And what would be better to do this via regex?
      Problem is i am not really good at this regex stuff. So maybe someone could help me here.
       
      The challange is to get all Global Variables from a script via RegEx in a Array.
      Here is a example script with some tests:
      Global $Var1 = 1234 Local $Local_Var = 1234 $Ignore_me_too = 1234 Global $Var2 = 1234, $var3 = 1242 Global $ahIcons[30], $ahLabels[30] Global Const $Var4 = iniread($inivar1,"jj","jj","") , $var5= iniread($inivar2,"jj","jj","") Global $Var_String = "was" Global $Array_Test[16] = [1,15,16,0,31,15,25,15,25,30,8,30,8,15,1,15] Global Enum $MARGIN_SCRIPT_NUMBER = 0, $MARGIN_SCRIPT_ICON, $MARGIN_SCRIPT_FOLD Global Const $Delim = '\', $Delim1 = '|' Global $hard1 = "a", _ $hard2 = "b", _ $hard3 = "c"  
      The returning array should look like this:
      $Var1 $Var2 $var3 $Var4 $var5 $Var_String $Array_Test $MARGIN_SCRIPT_NUMBER $MARGIN_SCRIPT_ICON $MARGIN_SCRIPT_FOLD $Delim $Delim1 $hard1 $hard2 $hard3  
      I already made some success with a expression i found in the SciTE Jump Tool:  (\$\w+)(?:[\h\[.=+*/^,)\-])?
      This nearly returns the perfect results. But it does not check if it´s a global variable (with the const and enum options) and also returns variables in commands (for example $inivar1)
      I also found this regex: (?im:^(?=Global|Const|Enum|Static)(?:Global)?\h*(?:Const|Enum|Static)?(?:(?<=Enum)\h+Step\h+[+*-]\d+)?\h*)([^\r\n .\=]+)
      This returns also usefull results...but trying to understand this explodes my head

      Maybe someone can help me here?
      Thanks in advance!

      Can anyone tell me why this isn't working?..
      #include <array.au3> $regexp = StringRegExp("test 'a b c'", "'([^']|'')*'|\S+", 3) _ArrayDisplay($regexp) trying to split this "test 'a b c'  'some other '' test'' ...'" into:
      0: test
      1: 'a b c'
      2: ...
      but it gives me:
      0: test
      1: c

      Hi guys,
      I am pretty bad with regex, and am having some trouble trying to come up with an expression for a certain type of string. Basically I want to be able to tell if a string is of the format:
      AA#####A
      Where the A's are any letter from A-Z and the #'s are any digit from 0-9.
      I've been playing around with a regex tester online for a while but I can't really seem to grasp the concept very well. Could anyone give me any tips?
      This isn't exactly an AutoIt specific question which is why I didn't post it in General Help & Support.
