regex troubles

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

If I run in autoit:

$test = "Test passed on";
$matchArray = StringRegExp( $test, "(?i)(pass([a-z]?)+[. \-]+[a-z0-9]+)", 1 )

It matches the "e".

However, if I put the pattern in something else that uses regex, like Regex Doctor, the pattern matches "passed on" fine.

What's up?

Not sure what you mean, but it returns [ e, d, passed on ] when I want it to return just [ passed on ].

I don't see what's wrong.

#include <array.au3>
$test = "Test passed on";
$matchArray = StringRegExp( $test, "(?i)(pass([a-z]?)+[. \-]+[a-z0-9]+)", 1 )
_ArrayDisplay($matchArray,"result")

I guess the problem is the ([a-z]?)+, since it's a subgroup and returns its own matches.

I don't know how else to do it though, {0,} doesn't work for some reason and I don't know why.

I could do something like "(?i)(pass[a-z]{0,10}[. \-]+[a-z0-9]+)", but I prefer a general solution.
