StringRegExpReplace() and tagged expressions

3 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I am trying to get a tagged expression to work with StringRegExpReplace(), but can't put it together. Is it even possible with the function?

Search for: (?i)\(.*\)test\(.*\)

Replace with: \1NewTest\2

Changing 16test17.txt

To 16NewTest17.txt

and

Changing 16Test17.txt

To 16NewTest17.txt

I need to keep the case-insensitive portion, and this is only a simple example a more complex could be:

Search for: (?i)\(.*\)test\(.*\)\.txt

Replace with: \1NewTest\2.bat

Changing 16test17.txt

To 16NewTest17.bat

If you are using the SciTe text editor, remove the (?i) from the search and you can see this work on the following list:

1test2.txt

2test3.txt

3test4.txt

4test5.txt

5test6.txt

6test7.txt

7test8.txt

8test9.txt

9test10.txt

10test11.txt

11test12.txt

12test13.txt

13test14.txt

14test15.txt

15test16.txt

16test17.txt

test18.txt

test19.txt

Test.txt

Regards,

Karl

I couldn't figure out what the extra backslashes were for in your RegExp, so I just removed them, and this seems to work:
Global $avInput[3] = ["1test2.txt", "2test3.txt", "3test4.txt"]

For $n = 0 To UBound($avInput) - 1
    ConsoleWrite("Input: " & $avInput[$n] & @LF)
    ConsoleWrite("Output: " & StringRegExpReplace($avInput[$n], "(?i)(.*)test(.*)", "\1NewTest\2") & @LF)
Next

The extra backlsahes were what the text editor uses to tag the expressions. I am not sure what I had when I used your version, which does work. Must have had some typo with that test.

Thank you for the reply!
