StringRegExp by patterns

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,
I'm trying to make a function that will catch all these phrases (in the array) that are case sensitive to wording that may contain other characters too 
the combination placements of (*) and (.) in the array are to be treated as patterns, so if the array should grow it will have the same patterns, only with different phrases

Starting out with this very raw example .. 
Main help is needed for the "StringRegExp" search patterns (broken in this example)
Of course ,Comments and suggestion on how this function may be improved are Welcome

 

Dim $wxpr[12]
$wxpr[1] = "word"
$wxpr[2] = "word.ext"
$wxpr[3] = "word.*"
$wxpr[4] = "*.ext"
$wxpr[5] = "*.word*"
$wxpr[6] = "*word*.*"
$wxpr[7] = "*.*word"
$wxpr[8] = "*word*.ext"
$wxpr[9] = "word*.*"
$wxpr[10] = "*word%word%word%word.*"
$wxpr[11] = "word%word%word*.*"

MsgBox(0, "_match", _match("this word and.ext"))

Func _match($aVal)
    For $i = 1 To UBound($wxpr) - 1
        If Not StringInStr($wxpr[$i], "*") Then
            ;should match to $wxpr[1] ,$wxpr[2]
            If $wxpr[$i] = $aVal Then
                Return 1
            EndIf
        ElseIf StringInStr($wxpr[$i], "*.*") Then
            Local $iPosition = StringInStr($wxpr[$i], "*.*")
            If $iPosition <> 1 Then
                StringReplace($wxpr[$i], "*", "*")
                If @extended > 2 Then
                    ;should match to $wxpr[6]
                    Local $a = StringReplace($wxpr[$i], "*", "")
                    $a = StringReplace($wxpr[$i], ".", "")
                    StringRegExp($aVal, "." & $a & "*\.*.", 0)
                    MsgBox(0, "StringRegExp", $wxpr[$i] & @CRLF & @error)
                    If @error = 1 Then Return 1
                Else
                    ;should match to $wxpr[11]
                EndIf
            Else
                ;should match to $wxpr[7]
            EndIf
        ElseIf StringInStr($wxpr[$i], ".*") Then
            StringReplace($wxpr[$i], "*", "*")
            If @extended > 1 Then
                ;should match to $wxpr[10]
            Else
                ;should match to $wxpr[3]
            EndIf
        ElseIf StringInStr($wxpr[$i], "*.") Then
            Local $iPosition = StringInStr($wxpr[$i], "*.")
            If $iPosition <> 1 Then
                ;should match to $wxpr[8]
            Else
                StringReplace($wxpr[$i], "*", "*")
                If @extended > 1 Then
                    ;should match to $wxpr[5]
                Else
                    ;should match to $wxpr[4]
                EndIf
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Next
    Return 0
EndFunc

Deye,

How about this:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Global $wxpr[12] = [11, _
                   "word", _
                   "word.ext", _
                   "word.*", _
                   "*.ext", _
                   "*.word*", _
                   "*word*.*", _
                   "*.*word", _
                   "*word*.ext", _
                   "word*.*", _
                   "*word%word%word%word.*", _
                   "word%word%word*.*"]

_Match("this word and.ext")

Func _Match($sString)
    For $i = 1 To UBound($wxpr) - 1
        ; Convert to SRE pattern (escape PCRE chars and replace "*")
        $sPattern = StringReplace(StringRegExpReplace($wxpr[$i], "[][$^.{}()+\-]", "\\$0"), "*", ".*?")
        ; Check translation
        ConsoleWrite($wxpr[$i] & " - " & $sPattern & @CRLF)
        ; Try to match
        If StringRegExp($sString, $sPattern) Then
            MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Match", $i & @CRLF & @CRLF & $wxpr[$i])
        EndIf
    Next

EndFunc

That seems to work for your test string.
