Special character handling unclear

3 posts in this topic

I am busy with understanding AutoIt and to do that I make small programs to look of expections are in accordance with test result.

I have written a small piece, which I have used in the debugger to follow the results and pasted back the results as comment

#include <String.au3>

Global $test, $hex, $result1, $result2 
$hex="808182838485868788898A8B8C8D8F909192939495969798999A9B9C9D9E9FA0A1A2A3A4A5A6A7A8A9AAABACADAEAF"
$test=_HexToString($hex) & "Normal text"
; ¡¢£¤¥¦§¨©ª«¬­®¯Normal text
$result1 = StringRegExpReplace($test,"[\000-\377]","?")
;????????????????????????????????
$result2 = StringRegExpReplace($test,"[\200-\377]","?")
;?????????????????????Normal text
;
MsgBox(0,"",$test & @CRLF & $result1  & @CRLF & $result2)

The proggie creates some chars with codes of ox80 and higher.

I use the StringRegExpReplace with the patterns [\000-\377] and [\200-\377] to replace matches with ? (question marks).

I expected to see in $result1 only ???????????? and in

in result 2 all ????? followed by Normal text

Is my interpretation wrong?

Run your script with AutoIt3A.exe (ANSI version) vice AutoIt3.exe. The PCRE is compiled with the Unicode option in the standard AutoIt. Your script works as you expect when run with the ANSI version of AutoIt, which has its PCRE compiled for ANSI mode.

Many thanks,

This solves the problem for now.

I have to learn another environment at the moment that the need for Unicode support arises.
