Genius required for StringSplit

7 posts in this topic

Am I dreaming or is there a way to split a string on more than one delimiter? Of course the option is to run it through a couple of StringReplace() calls.

I want to take a string like 149° 23" 54' and split it So I end up with $array[1] = 149, $array[2] = 23 and $array[3] = 11

I thought of just splitting on the spaces but I won't be able to depend on them being there. Someone may enter it as

149°23"54' They way also add N, S, E, W to the end but that will be discarded.

BTW: ° is Chr(176)

This works but leaves a trailing parentheses on the last element:

Works okay now:

#include<Array.au3>
$String = "149° 23"" 54'"

$array = StringSplit(StringTrimRight($String, 1), Chr(176) & '"')

_ArrayDisplay($array)oÝ÷ Ù8b³

It doesn't use StringSplit() ... but why do we even need it anyway.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I just got served. Straight regex was my first idea but I didn't know how to account for the possibility of the spaces not being present. I guess spaces aren't even relevent with this.

I need the string split because the 3 resulting numbers get fed to different functions.

$Array[1] to Func A()

$array[2] and $array[3] To Func B()

This is getting very close

Actually Using $in = StringStripWS($in, 8) will take care of the white space issue.

I can eliminate the ' by using If StringInStr($in, Chr(39)) Then $in = StringReplace($in, Chr(39), "")

The whole thing will depend on what the user inputs and that will be determined by the accuracy they need.

They might just input the number of degrees or they might add arcminutes and/or arcseconds.

So StringRegExpReplace() will probably be the way to go. It's a matter of getting that right.

The version Sm0ke_N posted worked just fine for me. I tried it with spaces and without.

I'm working with it right now.

I wrote a Halversine function as part of a UDF but I have to be careful how the data is input. It will only work with degrees so I had to write a second func to convert arcminutes and arcseconds to degrees. If the return of that func is wrong it throws off the whole Halversine function.

Thanks to both of you.
