Attempting to parse multiline command stderr output


Recommended Posts

Howdy!

I am attempting to parse the stderr output of ffmpeg and store it into an array that will be pushed to a combobox. I have the full output example below.

 

Original input:

[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40] Found 3 NDI sources:
[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (Remote Connection 1)'    'ndi-app:PC-NAME%20(Remote%20Connection%201)'
[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (NDI - Output 1)'    '192.168.1.201:5961'
[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'ANOTHER-PC (NDI - Output 3)'    '192.168.1.201:5962'
dummy: Immediate exit requested
 

Needed output:

PC-NAME (Remote Connection 1)
PC-NAME (NDI - Output 1)
ANOTHER-PC (NDI - Output 3)

 

My current code is here:

 

$iPID = Run(@ComSpec & ' /C "ffmpeg.exe -hide_banner -f libndi_newtek -find_sources 1 -i dummy"', @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD)
ProcessWaitClose($iPID)
$sDirtyOutput = StderrRead($iPID)
;This one gives me the columns I want, but the strings are still surrounded by single quotes " ' ".
;$sOutput = StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace($sDirtyOutput, ".*Found\ \d\ NDI\ sources:", ""), "dummy:\ Immediate\ exit\ requested", ""), "\[.*\]", "")
; This one gives no output.
$sOutput = StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace(StringRegExpReplace($sDirtyOutput, ".*Found\ \d\ NDI\ sources:", ""), "dummy:\ Immediate\ exit\ requested", ""), "\[.*\]", ""), "(?<=\047).*?(?=\047)", "")
$aOutputArray = StringSplit($sOutput, @CRLF)
GUICtrlSetData($aOutputArray, $sOutput & @CRLF)
;Remove blank lines from the Array.
For $i = UBound($aOutputArray) - 1 To 0 Step -1
        If $aOutputArray[$i] = "" Then
                _ArrayDelete($aOutputArray, $i)
        EndIf
        Next
        _ArrayDisplay($aOutputArray)

 

The output I get is:

''''

''''

''''

Maybe this :

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sText = "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40] Found 3 NDI sources:" & @CRLF & _
"[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (Remote Connection 1)'    'ndi-app:PC-NAME%20(Remote%20Connection%201)'" & @CRLF & _
"[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (NDI - Output 1)'    '192.168.1.201:5961'" & @CRLF & _
"[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'ANOTHER-PC (NDI - Output 3)'    '192.168.1.201:5962'" & @CRLF & _
"dummy: Immediate exit requested"

Local $aArray = StringRegExp($sText,"'(PC-NAME.+?|ANOTHER-PC.+?)'", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

 

Thank You. I will not always get the same PC name. I really need the 2nd column text.

PC-NAME/ANOTHER-PC are always in upper case ?  Rest are always in lower case ?

#include <Array.au3>

Local $sText = "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40] Found 3 NDI sources:" & @CRLF & _
"[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (Remote Connection 1)'    'ndi-app:PC-NAME%20(Remote%20Connection%201)'" & @CRLF & _
"[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (NDI - Output 1)'    '192.168.1.201:5961'" & @CRLF & _
"[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'ANOTHER-PC (NDI - Output 3)'    '192.168.1.201:5962'" & @CRLF & _
"dummy: Immediate exit requested"

Local $aArray = StringRegExp($sText,"'([A-Z].+?)'", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

If that does not work, please provide some REAL results that we can actually work with...

This should match any PC Name (regardless of capitalization) as long as the line structure follows your example.

#include <Array.au3>
Local $sText =  "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40] Found 3 NDI sources:" & @CRLF & _
                "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (Remote Connection 1)'    'ndi-app:PC-NAME%20(Remote%20Connection%201)'" & @CRLF & _
                "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-NAME (NDI - Output 1)'    '192.168.1.201:5961'" & @CRLF & _
                "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'ANOTHER-PC (NDI - Output 3)'    '192.168.1.201:5962'" & @CRLF & _
                "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'PC-Name2 (NDI - Output 3)'    '192.168.1.201:5962'" & @CRLF & _
                "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'Whatever PC-Name (NDI - Output 3)'    '192.168.1.201:5962'" & @CRLF & _
                "[libndi_newtek @ 000001f53af6af40]     'unknown'    '192.168.1.201:5962'" & @CRLF & _
                "dummy: Immediate exit requested"

Local $aArray = StringRegExp($sText,"\].*?'(.+?)'", 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)
