Addition to String.au3 UDF

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Very simple, and I was actually surprised it didn't exist yet. I came to it because I happen to occasionaly use the $count identifier in mIRC scripting. _StringCount counts the number of times a substring occurs in a string. The way it works is copied from the way it works in mIRC scripting, so _StringCount("aaa","aa") returns 1. If someone thinks it would be convenient to add a way for it to return 2 in that case, you are welcome to write it :]

Here's the function:

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; _StringCount("string","substring",N)
; Counts the number of times 'substring' occurs in 'string.'
; If N is 0 the function is non case-sensitive, if N is bigger
; than 0, it is.
;
; Parameters:
;  $_text               - holds text
;  $_$count             - substring
;  $_N                  - case sensitivity, 0 or >0
;
; Returns on success:   - number of times 'substring' occurs in 'string'
; Returns on failure:   - -1
;
; @error settings:      - 0: If the function was succesful and 'substring' was found
;                       - 1: If the function was succesful and 'substring' was not found
;                       - 2: If the function failed
;
; Note:                 Although N can be larger than 0, it can not be a negative value.
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
Func _StringCount($_text,$_count,$_cs = 0)
    Local $iNum
    If StringIsDigit($_cs) <> 1 Then
        SetError(2)
        Return -1
    EndIf

    If $_cs >= 1 Then
        StringReplace($_text,$_count,$_count & "t",0,1)
        $iNum = @extended
    Else
        StringReplace($_text,$_count,$_count & "t")
        $iNum = @extended
    EndIf

    If $iNum = 0 Then
        SetError(1)
        Return $iNum
    Else
        SetError(0)
        Return $iNum
    EndIf
    
    ;; if the script reaches this part, obviously something
    ;; has gone wrong, and an error is returned
    SetError(2)
    Return -1
EndFunc ;; _StringCount

Nice job, I do something similar with string split

MsgBox(0,'Count',_StringCount('aaa', 'aa'))

Func _StringCount($sString, $vDelimeter, $iEntireString = 1)
    If Not StringInStr($sString, $vDelimeter) Then
        SetError(1)
        Return 0
    EndIf
    Return UBound(StringSplit($sString, $vDelimeter, $iEntireString)) - 2
EndFunc
