Hello altogether,

yes I already noticed the  StringRegExp AutoIt reference  and the very good german tutorial of SEuBo, but nevertheless I would be pleased to get a tip.

I have strings like this:

'repair car "do it your self" check' 

or

' repair car toyota'.

There could be none, one or more words in quotation marks. It could be also that no expression is set in quotation marks (-->" "). The words of the string vary. I would like to generate an array like [repair, car, do it your self, check] or [repair, car, toyota]. Expressions in quotation marks (" ") should not be splitted.

Probably I could use string split and similar methods to combine the words in quotation marks afterwards. But that's not the way I'd like to do it.

I already got this reg-exp to extract just the complete expressions in quotation marks (" ") to seperate these from the rest of the terms:

Local $aExtract4 = StringRegExp($sTest4, '.*?"(.*?)".*?',3)

Moreover I found this reg-exp to work similar to StringSplit with a " " as a delimiter. This would probably a solution if I didn't like to keep the terms in quotations marks together.... :

Local $aExtract8 = StringRegExp($sTest4, '(.+?(?:\s|\z))',3)

Nevertheless I failed to find a single reg-exp that is able to met both conditions. I am convincend that it is possible to design a single reg-exp that met both conditions! I already tried different scenarios with operators like or |, the conditional (?(?=   ) clause and the use of assertion (Lookahead / -behind) but without success.

I would appreciate a hint from an "reg-exp expert" if it's able to solve my problem with a single reg-exp and / or to give me some hints how to do that.

Many thanks in advance.

      Good morning
      I'm playing with SRE and trying to obtain some information from a test file.
      I was testing the pattern on regex101, but when I bring it to AutoIt, it doesn't return the same result as on regex101.
      I am surely (?:missing some important notes about PCRE engine|the pattern is not correct at all).
      Script:
      #include <Array.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> Test() Func Test() Local $strFileName = @ScriptDir & "\TestFile.txt", _ $strFileContent, _ $arrResult $strFileContent = FileRead($strFileName) If @error Then Return ConsoleWrite("FileRead ERR: " & @error & @CRLF) $arrResult = StringRegExp($strFileContent, '(?sx)User:\h([^\n]+)\n' & _ 'Login\-name:\h([^\n]+)\n' & _ '(?:CaseSensitive:\h([^\n]+)\n)?' & _ 'NTSecurity:\h([^\n]+)\n' & _ '(?:NO\n)?' & _ '(?:Domain:\h([^\n]+)\n)?' & _ 'Timeout:\h([^\n]+)\n' & _ '.*?' & _ 'Member:\h([^\n]+)\n', $STR_REGEXPARRAYGLOBALMATCH) If IsArray($arrResult) Then _ArrayDisplay($arrResult) EndFunc Test file:
      User: AMMINISTRATORE Login-name: ADM CaseSensitive: YES NTSecurity: NO NO Timeout: 00:05:00 Member: AMMINISTRATORI User: Test_User Login-name: Test_User NTSecurity: YES Domain: DNEU Timeout: 00:00:00 Member: OPERATORS Member: OPERATORS Any help (even from cats) it's highly appreciated.

      Cheers

      Inspired by PHP's preg_split.
      Split string by a regular expression.
      Also supports the same flags as the PHP equivalent.
      v1.0.1
       
      Example:
      #include "StringRegExpSplit.au3" StringRegExpSplit('splitCamelCaseWords', '(?<=\w)(?=[A-Z])') ; ['split', 'Camel', 'Case', 'Words']

      i am trying to get number from string using this code :
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach ("Edu.corner") Local $aName = "Student name & Code:", $iaName = "0" Local $oTds = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "td") For $oTd In $oTds If $oTd.InnerText = $aName Then $iaName = $oTd.NextElementSibling.InnerText $iGet = StringRegExpReplace($iaName, "\D", "") EndIf Next MsgBox(0, "", $iGet) it was get number like 52503058
      But, I want to get only student code 5250. (Different student have different code, sometime its 3 digits, Sometime 4)

      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

      So I have this pattern: 
      ^(?:(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+):(\d+))$ And I'm expecting (depending on input) to get a 1, 2 or 3 index array (or @error for invalid input).
      But instead I get this:
      #include <Debug.au3> Func Test($String) _DebugArrayDisplay(StringRegExp($String, '^(?:(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+)|(\d+):(\d+):(\d+))$', 1)) EndFunc Test('10') ; Results (normal, expected): ; Row 0|10 Test('10:20') ; Results (extra blank index): ; Row 0| ; Row 1|10 ; Row 2|20 Test('10:20:30') ; Results (three blank indices): ; Row 0| ; Row 1| ; Row 2| ; Row 3|10 ; Row 4|20 ; Row 5|30 Is this normal? Should I just code around it, or is there a better way to do what I'm looking for?
      I also tried reversing my regex, but it was even uglier results:
      #include <Debug.au3> Func Test($String) _DebugArrayDisplay(StringRegExp($String, '^(?:(\d+):(\d+):(\d+))|(\d+):(\d+)|(\d+)$', 1)) EndFunc Test('10') ; Results (yuck): ; Row 0| ; Row 1| ; Row 2| ; Row 3| ; Row 4| ; Row 5|10 Test('10:20') ; Results (slightly better): ; Row 0| ; Row 1| ; Row 2| ; Row 3|10 ; Row 4|20 Test('10:20:30') ; Results (nice): ; Row 0|10 ; Row 1|20 ; Row 2|30
