I would like to know on how to retrieve text within string

1) start after search "by" and end with "reads"

2) it should return " bus and Mary" as results = $sResult

$txt="I go to school by bus and Mary reads book in Library"

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Help file is still pending. Melba23 already pointed you in the right direction, is this lazyness?

Using _ArrayDisplay, "23133" display on pop up, but when it fails to write into a temp.txt file.

 

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <String.au3>
$txt = "<package_id>23133</package_id>"
$Check = _StringBetween( $txt, '<package_id>', '</package_id>')
;MsgBox(0,"DevCentral Result equals: ", $Check)
_ArrayDisplay($Check)
Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen("D:\temp.txt", 2)
FileWriteFromArray($hFileOpen, $Check & @CRLF)
FileClose($hFileOpen)

Does anyone have any suggestions on what wrong it is?
Thanks, to everyone very much for any suggestions (^v^)

You need to use the Array i.e.

FileWrite($hFileOpen, $Check[0] & @CRLF)

When I run it without error, but there is no text in temp.txt.

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <String.au3>
$txt = "<package_id>23133</package_id>"
$Check = _StringBetween( $txt, '<package_id>', '</package_id>')
Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen("D:\temp.txt", 2)
FileWrite($hFileOpen, $Check & @CRLF)
FileClose($hFileOpen)

Do you have any suggestions?

$Check & @CRLF

This isn't sensible and doesn't yield an array!

that user doesn't read posts, just bleats out inane question after question. also (ab)uses people like you too which bothers me. 99% of the answers to the questions of his threads are found in the help file which, in my opinion is WAY better than most languages help.

@oemript You still didn't change $Check to $Check[0] as I wrote in the code above which is why it's failing, you do need to read the help file, if you read the _StringBetween you would have seen the following:

Return Value

Success: a 0-based array - element [0] contains the first found string.

Please engage brain!

You concatenate (by use of the & operator) an array with a string (@CRLF). What do you think the result is? Did you try:

ConsoleWrite(VarGetType($Check & @CRLF) & @LF)

Now move on and look in the help what parameter type _ FileWriteFromArray expects? Note the leading underscore while you're at it.
