stringsplit anywhere with more than 2 consecutive spaces?

5 posts in this topic

I need to split a string that might look something like this:

sectionone _three spaces_ section two _Ten spaces_ this is is section three _five spaces_ sectionfour

Sorry about the way I had to write that, the board was cleaning extra spaces out of my sentence.

Does anybody know a good way to achieve this?

Thanks!

Try this:

$TEXT should be "sectionone _three spaces_ section two _Ten spaces_ this is is section three _five spaces_ sectionfour"

$StripWS = StringStripWS($TEXT,4)
$DATA = StringSplit($StripWS," ")

When the words fail... music speaks

#include <array.au3>
$string = "section one   section two          this is is section three     section four"
$string = StringRegExpReplace($string,"\h{3,}","¬")
$array = StringSplit($string,"¬")
_ArrayDisplay($array)

Here's an explanation:

;----- this include allows us to view the array we're creating
#include <array.au3>

;----- this is the string we want to test
$string = "section one   section two          this is is section three     section four"

;----- in Regular Expressions "\h{3,}" means... "a horizontal whitespace, 3 times or more"
;----- each time a match for this is found it is replaced with "¬"
$string = StringRegExpReplace($string,"\h{3,}","¬")

;----- now split the string wherever there is a "¬"
$array = StringSplit($string,"¬")

;----- display the array
_ArrayDisplay($array)
