        For $number To $cFiles[0]
            ;need to use StringRegExp here

helpus,

This seems to work:

Global $aFiles[] = [3, "info000001", "info999999", "Keep_me"]

For $i = 1 To $aFiles[0]
    If StringRegExp($aFiles[$i], "(?i)^info\d{6}$") Then
        ConsoleWrite("Delete:  " & $aFiles[$i] & @CRLF)
    Else
        ConsoleWrite("Keeping: " & $aFiles[$i] & @CRLF)
    EndIf
Next

It checks if the file name is "info" followed by 6 digits.

      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

      Hi,
      I want to add any needed conditions to the StringRegExp command so it can pull out only  "File.au3", "WinAPIFiles.au3", "Test.bmp" into the array
      #include <FileConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include 'WinAPIFiles.au3' #include "File.au3" ; Script Start - Add your code below here Local $bFileInstall = False ; Change to True and ammend the file paths accordingly. ; This will install the file C:\Test.bmp to the script location. If $bFileInstall Then FileInstall("C:\Test.bmp", @ScriptDir & "\Test.bmp") $sFile = FileRead(@ScriptFullPath) $aResults = StringRegExp($sFile, "(?i)(FileInstall\s*|include\s*)(.*)", 3) _ArrayDisplay($aResults) Thanks In Advance
