RegExp Replace Q

Recommended Posts

This one will be easy for some one who is with a fresh mind 

Local $__ItemPaths = 'C:\Users\user\Contacts\' & @LF & _
        'C:\Users\user2\Desktop\' & @CRLF & _
        'C:\Users\user' & @CRLF & _
        'C:\Users\user\Documents\' & @CRLF

$sSearch = "C:\Users\user"
$sOutput = StringRegExpReplace($__ItemPaths, "(\Q" & $sSearch & "\E([\\])\R)", "")
MsgBox(0, '', $sOutput)

All i need is it to  replace-out the "C:\Users\user" instance

if the instance in $__ItemPaths is with "\" as in "C:\Users\user\" .. should get it out in both cases

Tried doing it with adding  another group used with-without  ([\\]) in the pattern .. still no luck

Thanks

Edit: Never Mind just Got something that worked :

should be something like so:  StringRegExpReplace($__ItemPaths, "(\Q" & $sSearch & "\E.?\R)", "")

yours does open lots of edge cases, maybe something down this path...  (but not this, because it too has many lackings).

 

Local $__ItemPaths = 'C:\Users\user\Contacts\' & @LF & _
        'C:\Users\user2\' & @CRLF & _
        'C:\Users\user' & @CRLF & _
        'C:\Users\user\' & @CRLF & _
        'C:\Users\user2\stuff'

$sSearch = "C:\Users\user"
;~ $sOutput = StringRegExpReplace($__ItemPaths, "(\Q" & $sSearch & "\E([\\])\R)", "")  ; original
$sOutput = StringRegExpReplace($__ItemPaths, "(\Q" & $sSearch & "\E\\*(?:\r|\z))", "")
MsgBox(0, '', $sOutput)

Does it really need to be a regular expression then? You could just use StringReplace (once without a trailing \ and once with)
