StringSplit with whole words

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I want to use StringSplit with whole words, but unfortunately I couldn't find a way. I mean something like:

$array = StringSplit("This is a test", "is")

; I would like to receive the following:
; $array[0] = 2
; $array[1] = "This "
; $array[2] = " a test"

StringSplit is not the best way to do it but the example below does return your desired result:

#include <Array.au3>

$array = StringSplit("This is a test", " is ", $STR_ENTIRESPLIT)
_ArrayDisplay($array)

It's not the best way to do it because words can be delimited by more than just spaces.  For example, this would not work correctly using the example above:  "Red is: a color." or "It is, what it is."

Since your initial request was to keep the space before and after "is", you could use SRE like this :

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Local $sString = "This is a test and this is a new test"
Local $arr = StringRegExp($sString, "(.+?)(?|\bis\b|$)", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($arr)
