replacement

This object performs an ordered search and replace operation on the current content with the possibility of using PCRE regular expressions. An array with numeric indices defines the order of actions and thus allows multiple replacements at once.

replace

Property
replace
Data type
string / stdWrap
Description
Defines the string to be used for the replacement.

useRegExp

Property
useRegExp
Data type
boolean / stdWrap
Description
Defines that the search and replace strings are considered as PCRE regular expressions.
Default
0

Example

10 {
      search = #(a )CAT#i
      replace = \1cat
      useRegExp = 1
}

useOptionSplitReplace

Property
useOptionSplitReplace
Data type
boolean / stdWrap
Description
This property allows to use optionSplit for the replace property. That way the replace property can be different depending on the occurrence of the string (first/middle/last part, …). This works for both normal and regular expression replacements. For examples see below.
Default
0

Examples

10 = TEXT
10 {
    value = There_are_a_cat,_a_dog_and_a_tiger_in_da_hood!_Yeah!
    stdWrap.replacement {
        10 {
            search = _
            replace.char = 32
        }
        20 {
            search = in da hood
            replace = around the block
        }
        30 {
            search = #a (Cat|Dog|Tiger)#i
            replace = an animal
            useRegExp = 1
        }
    }
}

This returns: “There are an animal, an animal and an animal around the block! Yeah!”.

The following examples demonstrate the use of optionSplit :

20 = TEXT
20.value = There_are_a_cat,_a_dog_and_a_tiger_in_da_hood!_Yeah!
20.stdWrap.replacement.10 {
    search = _
    replace = 1 || 2 || 3
    useOptionSplitReplace = 1
}

This returns: “There1are2a3cat,3a3dog3and3a3tiger3in3da3hood!3Yeah!”

30 = TEXT
30.value = There are a cat, a dog and a tiger in da hood! Yeah!
30.stdWrap.replacement.10 {
    search = #(a) (Cat|Dog|Tiger)#i
    replace = ${1} tiny ${2} || ${1} midsized ${2} || ${1} big ${2}
    useRegExp = 1
    useOptionSplitReplace = 1
}

This returns: “There are a tiny cat, a midsized dog and a big tiger in da hood! Yeah!”
