Stringregexp using an array.

Recommended Posts

Aceguy

can Stringregexp be used to search an array... like

dim $myarray[51]
for $c=1 to 50
$myarray[$c]=random(1,50,1)
next
$str=Stringregexp($myarray, '25',3)

or do i have to cycle through the array...

for $c=1 to 50
$str=Stringregexp($myarray[$c], '25',3)
next

You have to loop because the function excepts a string type and not an array type.

Edit: ...but you can use _ArrayToString() if you like.

You might be able to work out a method based on this example

;
#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray[50]
For $i = 0 To Ubound($aArray) -1
   $aArray[$i] = ""
   For $j = 1 To 3;; Generate 3 letters for each elelment
      $aArray[$i] &= Chr(Random(97, 122, 1))
   Next
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Starting Array")
$sStr = _ArrayToString($aArray);; Create a string from the array
$sRegEx = "(?i)\|?(\w*n\w*)\|?"
$aRegExp = StringRegExp($sStr, $sRegEx, 3);;  Find the combinations that contain the letter "n"
_ArrayDisplay($aRegExp, "RegEx Array")
;

EDIT Whoa up here. In your example you could have used _ArrayFindAll($myArray, 25, 1)

Thanks guys...

i think _ArrayToString() would be better.... as (not mentioned) the string i would need to search for would be "M6 Txxx" where xxx is a 3 digit number.

so

$lines=_ArrayToString($lines,@cr)
$reg=StringRegExp($lines,'\bm6\b.\bt\d*',3)

thanks again both

_ArrayFindAll($myArray, "M6 T", 1, 0, 0, 1)
