Help with splitting a complex string

Recommended Posts

TheDcoder

Hello :), I am trying to find the best way to spilt this string:

:<nick>!<host mask> PRIVMSG <channel/nick> :<message>

into an array like this:

Global Enum $SENT_BY, $HOST_MASK, $SENT_TO, $MESSAGE

$aArray[$SENT_BY] = "<nick>"
$aArray[$HOST_MASK] = "<host mask>"
$aArray[$SENT_TO] = "<channel/nick>"
$aArray[$MESSAGE] = "<message>"

(Stuff between <> is dynamic)

I can do that with inefficient code but I think it is possible to do it more efficiently with RegEx :)

 

Thanks in Advance! TD :D

 

P.S Yeah, that is the raw format of a message received in IRC

You mean like this:

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sIn = ":<nick>!<host mask> PRIVMSG <channel/nick> :<message> ... and why not >this or that< "
Local $aOut = StringRegExp($sIn, "<[^>]*>", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aOut)

@jchd Ooops! I think you misunderstood, here is a example:

; :<nick>!<host mask> PRIVMSG <channel/nick> :<message>
#include <Array.au3>

Local $sIn = ":TheDcoder!anything_could_be_here PRIVMSG TheDcoder :Foobar"
Local $aOut = StringRegExp($sIn, "<[^>]*>", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aOut)

I used <> to denote variable content :P

 

Thanks in Advance, TD :)

@TheDcoder, your first message was not clear enough. I understood the same thing than jchd.

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sIn = ":TheDcoder!anything_could_be_here PRIVMSG TheDcoder :Foobar"
Local $aOut = StringRegExp($sIn, ":(.+?)!(.+?) PRIVMSG (.+?) :(\N+)", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aOut)

Sorry! :sweating:

 

Is there a way to validate if a string is in that format?

Yes, you can do like this :

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sIn = ":TheDcoder!anything_could_be_here PRIVMSG TheDcoder :Foobar"
Local $aOut = StringRegExp($sIn, "^:(.+?)!(.+?) PRIVMSG (.+?) :(\N+)$", 3)
If Not @error Then
    _ArrayDisplay($aOut)
EndIf

Do you want the spaces after and before:

PRIVMSG

?

The regex will work only if you have spaces around it.

{"responseData": {"results":[{"GsearchResultClass":"GwebSearch","unescapedUrl":"http://www.userbars.be/showroom/TheDcoder","url":"http://www.userbars.be/showroom/TheDcoder","visibleUrl":"www.userbars.be","cacheUrl":"http://www.google.com/search?q\u003dcache:TD31scizJEEJ:www.userbars.be","title":"Userbars | Userbar Showroom » \u003cb\u003eTheDcoder\u003c/b\u003e - Userbars.be","titleNoFormatting":"Userbars | Userbar Showroom » TheDcoder - Userbars.be","content":"Userbars Showroom \u003cb\u003eTheDcoder\u003c/b\u003e: firefox, keepass, password, manager, life, is, a, \ndonut, autoit, scripter, kongregate, pc, nerd."}],"cursor":{"resultCount":"555","pages":[{"start":"0","label":1},{"start":"1","label":2},{"start":"2","label":3},{"start":"3","label":4},{"start":"4","label":5},{"start":"5","label":6},{"start":"6","label":7},{"start":"7","label":8}],"estimatedResultCount":"555","currentPageIndex":0,"moreResultsUrl":"http://www.google.com/search?oe\u003dutf8\u0026ie\u003dutf8\u0026source\u003duds\u0026start\u003d0\u0026hl\u003den-GB\u0026q\u003dTheDcoder","searchResultTime":"0.10"}}, "responseDetails": null, "responseStatus": 200}

any problem using stringBetween?

 

Local $sIn = "yourstr"


Local $Str1=_StringBetween($sIn,'"url":"','"')[0]
Local $Str2=_StringBetween($sIn,'"titleNoFormatting":"','"')[0]

ConsoleWrite($Str1 & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($Str2 & @CRLF)

Saludos

      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 need help turning this string "20180913221626" into a formatted time string.
      I need to go from this: 20180913221626
      to this: 09/13/2018 10:16 PM
      I do not always know what the date will be so I can not just use a variable I need to actually convert/format. 
      I did see an older post in the forms that was basically the same question only the other guy did not post the working code and I can not figure out how to use _AD_GetObjectProperties properly to get what I want. 
      As always any help would be appreciated. 
      Here is the code I use to find the date, but it always gives me the unformatted version. 
      ;retrieve the items object $oItem = $oOutlook.Session.GetItemFromID($aItems[1][0], Default) $oItem.GetInspector $eSentOn = $oItem.SentOn ; When was the email sent? MsgBox("", "Sent On of the email", $eSentOn) ;******************************************************************************* ; Formats the date and time from the email ;******************************************************************************* ;Local $fDatenTime = _DateTimeFormat($eSentOn, 1) ;MsgBox("", "Formatted email time", $fDatenTime) $aProperties = _AD_GetObjectProperties($eSentOn) _ArrayDisplay($aProperties, "Did the conversion work?")

      I got that func
      Func makeHelpImgGUI($title,$width,$height,$img) $img = GUICtrlCreatePic("",20,40,$width,$height) _ResourceSetImageToCtrl($img, "HERE") EndFunc and I call this func like that
      makeHelpImgGUI("Image",1190, 800,$SETTINGS_JPG)  
      so what is the problem in the parameter where is - "HERE" I need value of img but passed as string
      so $img = $SETTINGS_JPG and how make it "SETTINGS_JPG"
       
      I tried something like that but not work
      Func makeHelpImgGUI($title,$width,$height,$img) $name_str = String($img) $name_str = StringTrimLeft ($name_str, 1 ) $img = GUICtrlCreatePic("",20,40,$width,$height) _ResourceSetImageToCtrl($img, $name_str) EndFunc

      Hi, I have the following line in a text file 'input.txt'. I know the line number - say '6'. I wish to replace the text 'WWW' in the below line with a random number (I can generate that with random()).
      WERIS  WWWJP   3.83  8.330  1.000                1097.RAXX 
      The WWW is a 3 digit integer (could be any number between 0 to 999), I can use stringtrimleft and get the numerical value of WWW in this file
      so, basically, I know the string to replace (ie; WWW stored in a variable), I know the line number to work on and the file location/name and the replacement variable (through random()). My requirement is to fill that 3 spaces with my random number (which Is a integer between 1 and 999)
      please put ur suggestions
