[RESOLVED] RegEx Resource

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm back to working on my RegEx skills and trying to come up with something to reformat file directory / file paths that are coming from other applications so that I can feed the resulting list into another script that I came up with. My problem is that I have been testing my RegEx by using https://regex101.com/ with PCRE(PHP). To date it has worked well for me, however, I have hit a stumbling block. In the example below the RegEx on line 158 when applied to pattern "C:\S\*" should pass through the ELSE on line 162 and then get trapped by line 175.

Instead, it flows to 159 and then 188. I'm going cross-eyed and I can't spot the problem in the RegEx, If you have a moment and have experience with this kind of thing, would you please take a quick look and tell me what you think is wrong besides this being probably the ugliest way to go about a simple task.

The task is simply end up with either a full file path or a directory without a trailing backslash. Thanks in advance,

Casey

EDIT - [RESOLVED]  Replaced script block with corrections, though I am not at all happy with how sloppy it is and I am going to rewrite after learning quite a bit in the process. I just didn't want to leave a truly broken bit out here on the site.

Let's see:

$eArray = StringRegExp("C:\S\*", "(?x) ^ \w : \\ [\. \(\)\w\\-]+ \\ [^\w\\ \.-]+", 2)
_ArrayDisplay($eArray)

JCHD,

Thank you and I am very sorry. Like I said I was getting cross eyed and the string that I'm stuck on is "C:\S\" and not "C:\S\*". My RegEx actually works on that one. The problem is that it also works on the other using tester. I'll also say that though it is going to take me a bit to read through your version, it looks a bit more intelligent and I think I'll be able to learn something from it. I spotted an error in trimming a string so I have updated my code above and I also see more problems down the line which is fine and why I am working through this exercise.

This is the + quantifier right at the end of the pattern that prevents matching on "C:\S\" by requiring at least one char after the last backslash.

Oh, you on it! I had to add another bit of logic after it failed out on the third RegEx. Added a fourth replacing the + with a ? to catch "C:\S\". I'll update my code in a minute. Now just need to tweak the logic to get rows 8-10 and I'll be done. Thanks a million for catching that.

      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

      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.
