Re^4: Help with a regular expression for file name parsingby bontchev (Sexton)
|on Dec 07, 2011 at 13:12 UTC||Need Help??|
You checked what? I asked for a regular expression - not for three pages of code and a link to somebody's totally irrelevant custom module!
Meanwhile, I figured out that the horrible BBoard software which this site uses simply mangles the posted code and to get the real stuff, you have to click on the "download" linke (which doesn't download!) and cut-and-paste from the page that opens.
So, I managed to make TJPride's script output something meaningful:
Unfortunately, it is also wrong. This is not the proper output. The proper output, which such data, would be:
Furthermore, I don't want all the stuff loaded into some kind of an array and everything in that array matched simultaneously. I have to do other stuff with each line, you know? I want to process the file line-by-line and, for this particular problem, I need a regular expression that fetches the file name after the "@include" keyword.
Let's make this very simple, shall we? Consider this snippet of code:
Question: What should SOME EXPRESSION be, so that if SOME STRING is"\@include file"
or"\@include \"some file\""
or"\@include another\\ file"
the output is respectivelyFile name: "file"
orFile name: "some file"
orFile name: "another file"
Please do not answer, unless you have tested that your answer actually produces the desired output.
