Remove all but XML style tags from text

Recommended Posts


G'day everyone

Here's what I want to do:

Turn this: <a0>This is a <a0/><b1>house<b1/>.

In to this: <a0><a0/><b1><b1/>

A couple of months ago I asked a similar question to this one, here, and the solution I got removing XML style tags here worked fine.

But this time I want to do the opposite, and after struggling several minutes with various regex strings I must admit that I do not understand how AutoIt's regex functions work. As far as my mind can stretch, this should work:

$j = StringRegExpReplace($i, '^(<[a-z,0-9,\\]*>)', '')

...but it doesn't -- in fact, it removes the first XML tag.

Can anyone please put me out of my misery and tell me what the correct regex syntax for this would be?

Try this:

#include <array.au3>
$i = "<a0>This is a <a0/><b1>house<b1/>."
$array = StringRegExp($i, '(<[a-z][0-9][/]{0,1}>)', 3)
$j = _ArrayToString ( $array, "")
MsgBox(0,"Info",$j)oÝ÷ ØÜjDz¢ì­éh¢H§ú+k²¶Þ¶êçë-ªê-N¬Æ¡¢ëªê-bjwhÛaÌÉ«­¢+ØÀÌØí¤ôÅÕ½Ðì±ÐíÀÐíQ¡¥Ì¥Ì±ÐíÀ¼Ðì±ÐíÄÐí¡½ÕͱÐíļÐì¸ÅÕ½Ðì(ÀÌØíÍÑÉ¥¹ôMÑÉ¥¹IáÁIÁ± ÀÌØí¤°Ìäì ±ÐímµéulÀ´åul½uìÀ°ÅôÐì¤Ìäì°ÅÕ½ÐìÅÕ½Ðì¤)5Í ½à À°ÅÕ½Ðí%¹¼ÅÕ½Ðì°ÀÌØíÍÑÉ¥¹¤
