Help with regular express

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am not expert with regular express, please help.

How do I get the path part from a string that contain path and other haracters such as by using the stringRegExp() method?

C:\AutoMDP\AE27.au3 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)
.

I need this part only:

C:\AutoMDP\AE27.au3

Note: The location of the au3 file may have different location.

and file name may differ as well.

Hi,

Try this:

$String = "C:\AutoMDP\AE27.au3 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)"

$Results = StringRegExpReplace($String, "(.*?) - \d .*$", "\1")

ConsoleWrite($Results)

Oops! sorry. This is not enough for my needs, although i was sure at the beginning.

The problem is that I need to get the path from the string regardless the tailing chars after the path.

The solution you have gave me is dippend on the number that came after the path...

Please help

Mayb this?:

$String = "C:\AutoMDP\AE27.au3 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)"

$Results = StringRegExp($String, "^.*\.au3", 1)

MsgBox(0, "", $Results[0])
