Recommended Posts

hey i would like to know if its possible to take a string like this

$string = "onethousandninehundredeightyfive"

and convert it into:

$string = "one thousand nine hundred eighty five"

i have something going on here but its no use

$string = "onethousandninehundredeightyfive"
Global $array[9] = ['one', 'two', 'three', 'four', 'five', 'six', 'seven', 'eight', 'nine']
Global $array1[19] = ['onethousand', 'twothousand', 'threethousand', 'fourthousand', 'fivethousand', 'sixthousand', 'seventhousand', 'eightthousand', 'ninethousand','tenthousand','hundred', 'twohundred', 'threehundred', 'fourhundred', 'fivehundred', 'sixhundred', 'sevenhundred', 'eighthundred', 'ninehundred']
MsgBox(0, 0, AddSpaces($string))


Func AddSpaces($string)
    Local $finalStr
    $length = StringLen($string)
    For $x = 0 To $length
        Local $trim = StringTrimRight($string, $x)
        For $h = 0 To 18
            If $trim = $array1[$h] Then
                $finalStr = $finalStr & " " & $trim
                $string = StringTrimLeft($string, $h)
                $length = StringLen($string)
            EndIf
        Next

        For $z = 0 To 8
            If $trim = $array[$z] Then
                $finalStr = $finalStr & " " & $trim
                $string = StringTrimLeft($string, $z)
                $length = StringLen($string)
            EndIf
        Next
    Next
    Return $finalStr
EndFunc   ;==>AddSpaces

Here's one way that it could be done:

example()

Func example()
    Const $kData = "onethousandninehundredeightyfivefiftysixninetyfour"

    Local $s = $kData
    $s       = StringRegExpReplace($s, "(?i)(zero|one|two|three|four(?!ty)|five|six(?!ty)|seven(?!y)|eight(?!y)|nine(?!ty))", "\1 ")
    $s       = StringRegExpReplace($s, "(?i)(twenty|thirty|fourty|fifty|sixty|seventy|eighty|ninety)", "\1 ")
    $s       = StringRegExpReplace($s, "(?i)(hundred|thousand)", "\1 ")

    ConsoleWrite($s & @CRLF)
EndFunc

(?i)  = Caseless: matching becomes case-insensitive from that point on.

TheXman,

I would add the space before the detected string, not after - think of "nine" and "nineteen".

@Melba23

Point taken.  My suggestion doesn't cover a myriad of additional possibilities or requirements.  But to your point, yes, there are several ways that it could have been accomplished. :)

Since "teens" weren't a part of the request, I didn't take them into account.  My solution was meant only to be as accurate as the request itself.  I try not to make any assumptions. :D

However, I did add "thousand" to the example just to point out that it was easy to expand upon the solution, if necessary.

As the regex engine reads the pattern left to right it could be done like this  :)

$string = "nineteenthousandninehundredninetynine"

Local $pattern
$pattern &= "(?i)("
$pattern &= "hundred|thousand|twenty|ten|eleven|twelve|"
$pattern &= "thirty|fourty|fifty|sixty|seventy|eighty|ninety|"
$pattern &= "thirteen|fourteen|fifteen|sixteen|seventeen|eighteen|nineteen|"
$pattern &= "zero|one|two|three|four|five|six|seven|eight|nine"
$pattern &= ")"

$s = StringRegExpReplace($string, $pattern, "$1 ")
Msgbox(0,"", $s)

Slightly modified version that uses @Melba23's suggestion:

#include <Constants.au3>

example()

Func example()
    Const $kData = "onethousandninehundredeightyfivefiftysixninetyfour"
    Const $kData2 = "nineteenthousandninehundredeightyfivefiftysixninetyfourfourteententhousand"

    Local $s = $kData2
    $s = StringRegExpReplace($s, "(?i)(?<! )(zero|one|two|three|four|five|six|seven|eight|nine|ten)", " \1")
    $s = StringRegExpReplace($s, "(?i)(?<! )(eleven|twelve|thirteen|fourteen|fifteen|sixteen|seventeen|eighteen|nineteen)", " \1")
    $s = StringRegExpReplace($s, "(?i)(?<! )(twenty|thirty|fourty|fifty|sixty|seventy|eighty|ninety)", " \1")
    $s = StringRegExpReplace($s, "(?i)(?<! )(hundred|thousand|million|billion)", " \1")
    $s = StringStripWS($s, $STR_STRIPLEADING)

    ConsoleWrite($s & @CRLF)
EndFunc

 

(?<! ) = Only do the replacement if there isn't already a leading space.

yours still struggles where there is a match inside of your match

e.g. the following string returns  "twomilli oneight thousand four hundred fifty three" in your script, but splits correctly with @mikell's (after adding million to the lead the pattern)

$string = "twomillioneightthousandfourhundredfiftythree"

Local $pattern
$pattern &= "(?i)("
$pattern &= "million|hundred|thousand|twenty|ten|eleven|twelve|"
$pattern &= "thirty|fourty|fifty|sixty|seventy|eighty|ninety|"
$pattern &= "thirteen|fourteen|fifteen|sixteen|seventeen|eighteen|nineteen|"
$pattern &= "zero|one|two|three|four|five|six|seven|eight|nine"
$pattern &= ")"

$s = StringRegExpReplace($string, $pattern, "$1 ")
Msgbox(0,"", $s)

Complication is not necessary
As I said before, the regex engine reads the pattern left to right, and after a match/replacement it doesn't go backwards
Simple example :

$string = "abcdefghi"

$pattern = "(\w{2}|\w)"

$s = StringRegExpReplace($string, $pattern, "$1.")
Msgbox(0,"", $s)

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi, This is my first post on the AutoIt Forums, I most of the time was able to get help from this community by merely searching though google and have been able to solve hundreds of problems this way, though in this case I was incapable of finding a solution to my problem. I am quite confident that it is a user error (And my fault) but I haven't been able to determine what I did wrong, any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I have uploaded my whole script pardon passwords to provide as much information as possible.
      I declared a global array at the top of the script and am having issues when I try to set it's value, and I fail to understand why.

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.
