StringRegExp syntax

8 posts in this topic

this is what I'm trying to do

Create multiple arrays base off file types (file names)

Grab a list of files from a directory using FileListToArray

convert the array to a string (FileListToArray allows for wildcards not RegExp)

Filter string putting files that are 4 digits followed by ".fsh" in a new array

The next filter is where I'm screwing up, it is most likely a simple syntax error

This filter should create an array of files that start with a "c" then 3 digits and ending with either ".fsh", ".orl", or ".ord". But this is my result

Here is my au3 code

#include <String.au3>
#include <array.au3>
#include <file.au3>

$FileList = _FileListToArray(@ScriptDir)
_ArrayDisplay($FileList, 'StringRegExp Search')

$newlist = _ArrayToString ( $FileList, ";")

$aArray2 = StringRegExp ( $newlist, '(\d\d\d\d.fsh)',3)
_ArrayDisplay($aArray2, 'StringRegExp Search')

$Faces = StringRegExp ( $newlist, '(c\d\d\d.(fsh|orl|ord))',3)
_ArrayDisplay($Faces, 'StringRegExp Search')

I could convert that array to a string and use StringRegExp to grab all files that is 1 letter, 3 digits, a "." then 3 letters, but I would really like to know what I'm doing wrong

c\d{3}.(fsh|orl|ord)

this seems to work

You might want to check out the regexp editor called Expresso 3.0 Beta...

The \d.

You're telling it to get the next character regardless what it is .

...

Do you have an example list we don't have to write out ourselves on how StringRegExp() is going to see the string?

Hi Sm0ke_N-

I think my regexp solves his problem...

I didn't see your post before I posted, but taking away the brackets will help for sure.

Actually, that doesn't do what he wanted to do...

#include <array.au3>
$sFile = FileRead(@ScriptDir & '\testing.txt')
$aCArray = StringRegExp($sFile, '\W(c\d{3}\.fsh|c\d{3}\.orl|c\d{3}\.ord)(?m:\r|$)', 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aCArray, 'c')
I think is more of what he was after.
