stringregexpreplace

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Simple problem...but can't get it. How can I use stringregexpreplace to remove a phrase within a sentence?

Ex.

$Test = "John went to town on monday"

I want to remove "John went to town". I don't want to use any of the functions to get the count and then trim, just want to use stringregexpreplace, and it has to work with none alphanumeric and numeric characters.

Thanks

Is it always going to be the same part to remove? Like is it "John went to town." "John went to town on monday." "John went to town in his new car." etc?

Yes, the $Test variable will always be different.....it will actually be '@ScriptDir & "\Folder\"' for my present needs. So everyones @ScriptDir will be different. And I figured I might as well ask my question in a generic way so I can apply it anytime I have the need for a similar situation.

Deleting something is just: $sString = StringRegExpReplace($sString, "RegExpHere", "")

But you have to tell it what to replace (with the RegExp). If you know it will be @ScriptDir, for example, it might be easier to just do: $sString = StringReplace($sString, @ScriptDir, "")

I can't believe I forgot about stringreplace. I was looking at everything except that like I had blinders on. Thanks.
