stringregexp and an exception

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

this line picks out the line that has "full name: blah,blah" in a text file

then creates an array for the name

$var=StringRegExp($string, "(?:Full Name.\s+)(.*),.(.*)\r\n", 3)
If IsArray($dname) Then
        For $x = 0 To UBound($dname) - 1
            ConsoleWrite($dname[$x] & @CRLF)
        Next
endif

sometimes "blah,blah" is not seperated by a comma, how can i account account for both cases?

I guess you are looking for "|" also know as OR.

or use [ ... ] (Match any character in the set)

If no comma, then what would be there? StringRegExp() is no psychic and you will have to specify what you want.

Where you have ",." there could be an alternate pattern like ",|\s" which would match either a comma or a single space.
