TPRegexp::TPRegexp ( const TPRegexp p)

Copy ctor.

Definition at line 70 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ ~TPRegexp()

Definition at line 80 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

Member Function Documentation

◆ Compile()

void TPRegexp::Compile ( )
protected

Compile the fPattern.

Definition at line 198 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ GetModifiers()

TString TPRegexp::GetModifiers ( ) const

Return PCRE modifier options as string.

For meaning of mods see ParseMods().

Definition at line 180 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ GetPattern()

TString TPRegexp::GetPattern ( ) const
inline

Definition at line 85 of file TPRegexp.h.

◆ GetThrowAtCompileError()

Bool_t TPRegexp::GetThrowAtCompileError ( )
static

Get value of static flag controlling whether exception should be thrown upon an error during regular expression compilation by the PCRE engine.

Definition at line 499 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ IsValid()

Bool_t TPRegexp::IsValid ( ) const

Returns true if underlying PCRE structure has been successfully generated via regexp compilation.

Definition at line 490 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ Match()

Int_t TPRegexp::Match ( const TString s,
const TString mods = "",
Int_t  start = 0,
Int_t  nMaxMatch = 10,
TArrayI pos = 0 
)

The number of matches is returned, this equals the full match + sub-pattern matches.

nMaxMatch is the maximum allowed number of matches. pos contains the string indices of the matches. Its usage is shown in the routine MatchS. For meaning of mods see ParseMods().

Definition at line 339 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ MatchB()

Bool_t TPRegexp::MatchB ( const TString s,
const TString mods = "",
Int_t  start = 0,
Int_t  nMaxMatch = 10 
)
inline

Definition at line 78 of file TPRegexp.h.

◆ MatchInternal()

Int_t TPRegexp::MatchInternal ( const TString s,
Int_t  start,
Int_t  nMaxMatch,
TArrayI pos = 0 
) const
protected

Perform the actual matching - protected method.

Definition at line 307 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ MatchS()

TObjArray * TPRegexp::MatchS ( const TString s,
const TString mods = "",
Int_t  start = 0,
Int_t  nMaxMatch = 10 
)

Returns a TObjArray of matched substrings as TObjString's.

The TObjArray is owner of the objects and must be deleted by the user. The first entry is the full matched pattern, followed by the sub-patterns. If a pattern was not matched, it will return an empty substring:

TObjArray *subStrL = TPRegexp("(a|(z))(bc)").MatchS("abc");
for (Int_t i = 0; i < subStrL->GetLast()+1; i++) {
const TString subStr = ((TObjString *)subStrL->At(i))->GetString();
std::cout << "\"" << subStr << "\" ";
}
std::cout << subStr << std::endl;

produces: "abc" "a" "" "bc"

For meaning of mods see ParseMods().

Definition at line 370 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ operator=()

TPRegexp & TPRegexp::operator= ( const TPRegexp p)

Assignment operator.

Definition at line 92 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ Optimize()

void TPRegexp::Optimize ( )
protected

Send the pattern through the optimizer.

Definition at line 230 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ ParseMods()

UInt_t TPRegexp::ParseMods ( const TString modStr) const
protected

Translate Perl modifier flags into pcre flags.

The supported modStr characters are: g, i, m, o, s, x, and the special d for debug. The meaning of the letters is:

  • m Treat string as multiple lines. That is, change "^" and "$" from matching the start or end of the string to matching the start or end of any line anywhere within the string.
  • s Treat string as single line. That is, change "." to match any character whatsoever, even a newline, which normally it would not match. Used together, as /ms, they let the "." match any character whatsoever, while still allowing "^" and "$" to match, respectively, just after and just before newlines within the string.
  • i Do case-insensitive pattern matching.
  • x Extend your pattern's legibility by permitting whitespace and comments.
  • p Preserve the string matched such that ${^PREMATCH}, ${^MATCH}, and ${^POSTMATCH} are available for use after matching.
  • g and c Global matching, and keep the Current position after failed matching. Unlike i, m, s and x, these two flags affect the way the regex is used rather than the regex itself. See Using regular expressions in Perl in perlretut for further explanation of the g and c modifiers. For more detail see: http://perldoc.perl.org/perlre.html#Modifiers.

◆ ReplaceSubs()

Int_t TPRegexp::ReplaceSubs ( const TString s,
TString final,
const TString replacePattern,
Int_t ovec,
Int_t  nmatch 
) const
protected

Returns the number of expanded '$' constructs.

Definition at line 251 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ SetThrowAtCompileError()

void TPRegexp::SetThrowAtCompileError ( Bool_t  throwp)
static

Set static flag controlling whether exception should be thrown upon an error during regular expression compilation by the PCRE engine.

Definition at line 508 of file TPRegexp.cxx.

◆ Substitute()

Int_t TPRegexp::Substitute ( TString s,
const TString replacePattern,
const TString mods = "",
Int_t  start = 0,
Int_t  nMaxMatch = 10 
)

Substitute replaces the string s by a new string in which matching patterns are replaced by the replacePattern string.

The number of substitutions are returned.

TString s("aap noot mies");
const Int_t nrSub = TPRegexp("(\\w*) noot (\\w*)").Substitute(s,"$2 noot $1");
std::cout << nrSub << " \"" << s << "\"" <<std::endl;

produces: 2 "mies noot aap"

For meaning of mods see ParseMods().

Int_t TPRegexp::SubstituteInternal ( TString s,
const TString replacePattern,
Int_t  start,
Int_t  nMaxMatch,
Bool_t  doDollarSubst 
) const
protected

Perform pattern substitution with optional back-ref replacement.
