StrRegExp help

Recommended Posts

I, unfortunatly still suck at StringRegExp. I am getting better, just very very slowly. I am trying to get as much practice as I can in, because it is a very useful and powerful tool.

I am writing a program which is going to record all of the different boards on a forum... To do this I need to extract the title of each board on the forum from its source code. Here is an example.

Source code:

<div id="content">

<div class="head"><h1>Site Suggestions</h1></div>
<div id="board_wrap">

The title of the board in this example is obviously "Site Suggestions" But I need a StringRegExp pattern that will extract it for every board.

Thanks in advance guys.

try this:

$string = '<div id="content"> <div class="head"><h1>Site Suggestions</h1></div><div id="board_wrap">'

$found_A = _SRE_Between($string, '<div class="head"><h1>', '</h1></div>', 1)

If IsArray($found_A) Then
    For $i = 0 To UBound($found_A) - 1
        MsgBox(0, '', $found_A[$i])
    MsgBox(0, '', $found_A)

Func _SRE_Between($s_String, $s_Start, $s_End, $i_ReturnArray = 0); $i_ReturnArray returns an array of all found if it = 1, otherwise default returns first found
    $a_Array = StringRegExp($s_String, '(?:' & $s_Start & ')(.*?)(?:' & $s_End & ')', 3)
    If Not @error And Not $i_ReturnArray And IsArray($a_Array) Then Return $a_Array[0]
    If IsArray($a_Array) Then Return $a_Array

Only the first (for the pattern)

$string = '<div id="content"> <div class="head"><h1>Site Suggestions</h1></div><div id="board_wrap">'

$found_A = StringRegExp($string, '(?:<div class="head"><h1>)(.*?)(?:</h1></div>)', 1)

_ArrayDisplay($found_A, "")

So long,
