Add spaces between string elements

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

ughh.. what are those (?i) i want to know i understand the (?!y) and (?!ty) , and thanks it works perfectly!

https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/StringRegExp.htm

(?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)

      Hi All,
       
      I am new to this AUTO IT and I have created a script that will open an app,enter pin and copy the code generated to clipboard. My java code call this autoIT script and use the copied generated code from clipboard.
      This works fine when server  window is on focus. My server is an windows server. 
      But when I minimize or disconnect the server, the script opens the app.exe but doesn't copy any value to clipboard.  
      Can anyone help me on this 😐
       
      Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\RSA SecurID Software Token\SecurID.exe")
      Local $hWnd=WinWait("abc - RSA SecurID Token") ; waits until the window is the active window
      $hWin = WinGetHandle("abc - RSA SecurID Token");
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","1111") ; simulates pressing the Home key
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","{ENTER}");
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","^c");
      Sleep(1000) ;
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","^c");

      Hi All,
      So I have created a small autoIT script to enter pin into a RSA token(app which generate new code every 30 second), and copy the generated code.
      I have a java application which requires this code so every time my java-code requires this RSA code, it runs the autoIT script and the copied generated code is then used in my java application. 
      I have deployed this code on a windows server and it works fine when I am logged in and the window is on focus, But as soon as I schedule task and disconnect the server (not logged out only disconnect), or even minimize the server window, the autoIT scripts fails and its not able to copy the value.
       
      Please find below the code for AUTOIT.
       
      WinActivate("rsa - RSA SecurID Token") ; activates the window that has old in the tilte bar
      WinWaitActive("rsa - RSA SecurID Token") ; waits until the window is the active window
      Send("1111") ; simulates pressing the Home key, enters password to get the code
      Send("{ENTER}") ; simulates pressing the Enter key
      Sleep(1000) ;
      Send("^c") ; simulates pressing the CTRL+c keys (copy)
       
      Also I saw some post regarding that WINACTIVE only works when window is active. But my below AUTO IT script to handle windows pop up  works perfectly fine when the server is disconnected. 
       
      Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)
      WinWait("https://url","","10")
      WinWaitActive("https://url","","10")
      Sleep(2000)
      Send("userid")
      Sleep(1000)
      Send("{TAB}")
      Sleep(1000)
      Send("passwrd")
      Send("{TAB}")
      Sleep(500)
      Send("{ENTER}")

      Here is the below code for handling pop-up when window is  inactive ..but I don't know how to change sleep and when i run this script it runs sometimes and sometimes it stops .

      --- these 3 lines never worked while TAB lines works sometimes but not in accurate way
      I am new too AutoIt .. help me out why this script behaves in strange way
