Hello guys, i have a problem in this regex because its not groupping right.

Look:

(\d{1,2}\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{1,2}(\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{2,4})?)

It checks for day or dayday, month or monthmonth, yearyear or yearyearyear+year.

separated with or without space and the characters "\/.-"

But, a problem! I tried to regex the date with or without the "separator + year" Eg: 05/05 or 05/05/05, but when i have 05/05/05, regex are separating 05/05 and /05

Iam using group "()" wrong?

Need help here :D

Thx adv!

~~EDIT:

Script used: (from autoitscript.com/forum/topic/129697-split-string-by-regular-expression/#comment-901335)

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sString = ClipGet()

; Extract the delimiters
$aDelim = StringRegExp($sString, '(\d{1,2}\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{1,2}(\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{2,4})?)', 3)

; Split the string on the delimiters
$aParts = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($sString, '(\d{1,2}\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{1,2}(\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{2,4})?)', "$<SEPARATOR>$"), "$<SEPARATOR>$", 3)

; Add the delimter to the start of the part
For $i = 0 To UBound($aParts) - 1
   ;$aParts[$i + 1] = $aDelim[$i] & $aParts[$i + 1]
Next

; Set the count
$aParts[0] = UBound($aParts)

; Display the result
_ArrayDisplay($aParts)
_ArrayDisplay($aDelim)

Results in array: (the array parts in all string is ok; but the string delimitator himself is getting separated in every string that have year together)

It helps when you post a small script that demonstrates the issue, so we can have a play with it.

are you sure that the pattern [\055|\056|\057|\134] matches what you expect ? https://regex101.com/r/zQ5xY4/1

 

It match "\/.-" one of these chars. But in this link you posted, regex are founding char "|", isnt this char a "OR" operator in regex?

EDIT: From AutoIt regex tutorial link: codeproject.com/Articles/9099/The-Minute-Regex-Tutorial;

I find it rare that people use octal nowadays, in regexp patterns or elsewhere.

Inside a character class, the bar | doesn't mean alternation, it stands for itself (redondantly here).

But one question remains: what format do you want the final result to be?

If you do not want the delimliter and year only to be specifically matched then make that part of the RE pattern a non-capturing group.
See example.

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sString = StringRegExpReplace(FileRead(@ScriptFullPath), "(?is)^.*#cs\R|\R?#ce.*$", "") ; ClipGet()
ConsoleWrite($sString & @CRLF)

$a = StringRegExp($sString, "((?:[0-9]{1,2}[\h\-\\/.]{0,3}){2,3})", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($a)

; Modified $aDelim from Post#1
$aDelim = StringRegExp($sString, '(\d{1,2}\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{1,2}(?:\s?[\055|\056|\057|\134]\s?\d{2,4})?)', 3)
; Note addition of "?:" in the RegExp pattern in the line above here~~~~~~~~~^
_ArrayDisplay($aDelim, "$aDelim")

; Data for variable $sString - Copied from Post#1
#cs

02 / 9 \ 16 – test

07 - 9 . 16 – test

09/9/16 – test

14\9\16 – test

16-9-16 – test


21.9.16 – test


23/9 – test


28\9 – test

How can i mark as solved this topic?

Amazing forum guys, thanks for the help!!!

 

~~EDIT:

I did a improve in the regex code.

Now check for a valid day (0-31; dont check by month) and check a valid month (1-12).

Including leading zero.

Check it out:

$aDelim = StringRegExp($texto, '((?:\n0[1-9]\s?[|\\/.-]\s?\b(?:0[1-9]|[1-9]|1[1-2])\b|\n[1-9]\s?[|\\/.-]\s?\b(?:0[1-9]|[1-9]|1[1-2])\b|\n[1-2][0-9]\s?[|\\/.-]\s?\b(?:0[1-9]|[1-9]|1[1-2])\b|\n3[0-1]\s?[|\\/.-]\s?\b(?:0[1-9]|[1-9]|1[1-2])\b)(?:\s?[|\\/.-]\s?\d{2,4})?)', 3)

      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']

      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

      Hello,
      I need some help to parse the Green highlighted value with from below text:

      I am using positive look behind.:
      (?<=FILM|WOUND|OXIDE).+ Can only pull this off:

      Im creating a code that will work in this sequence:
      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

      Here is an other UDF for string handling :
      Date handling
      _StringDateConvert:  convert a date from one format ("YMD", "MDY" or "DMY") to another.
      _StringIsDate:  checks if a date with a given format is valid
      String management
      _StringCount: count of occurrences that appear in a string
      _StringFormatBytesSize: formatting a dimension expressed in bytes (bytes) in MB, TB, ...)
      _StringIsEndingWith: check if a string end with some characters
      _StringIsStartingWith: check if a string start with some characters
      _StringJoinArray:  concatenate elements of an array to rebuild a string
      _StringPadLeft: filling a string with characters on the left
      _StringPadRight: fill a string with characters on the right
      _StringRemoveFrenchAccent: remove french accent
      _StringRemoveChars: deleting characters from a string
      _StringStrip: eliminate characters at the begin and/or at the  end of a string
      _StringTitleCaseFrench: capitalize the first letter of each word with elimination of french accents
      _StringWSClean: simple replacement of "White Spaces",  remove beginning and trailing spaces and multiple spaces removal
      Any comments, suggestions for improvement or constructive criticism are welcome.
      Below you will find the UDF and a demo program.
