Programming :: Javascript Many Characters As Reg Expression Replace?

Jan 2, 2010

I'm working with javascript and trying to replace all instances of a Roman character in a string with nothing. How do I assign var reg to all Roman characters? In UTF8, capital letter A is U0041 and at the other end, small z is UFF5A.

So, I'd like to do something like:
var reg = u0041 - UFF5A;
str1 = str.replace(reg, '');

I think you get the idea. I have no idea if that can be done. The idea is to take this string (for example): str = make a door-to-door[house-to-house] visit / ring every doorbell." And take out all the Roman characters and define it as str1. And then take out all the Korean characters (u1100-uFFDC) and define it as str2. In fact, a WAY more useful thing to do would be to replace the instance of this: [u1100-uFFDC]+" "+[u0041-UFF5A] with [u1100-uFFDC]+","+[u0041-UFF5A] so that the output would be a .csv file.

General :: Regular Expression To Match Unspecified Number Of Characters Until A '>'?

Jul 7, 2010

I'm attempting to search through a rather large assortment of html files created in Word using 'save as html'. what I'm trying to do is find and delete these tags (they're causing browsers to display black diamonds with white question marks):

<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'> </span> Tags contain from 1 to 4 spaces between opening and closing. I get positive results from this:

grep <span style='mso-spacerun:yes'> filename.html but once I attempt to tell it to match any number of characters up until the next '>' symbol, it tells me I'm using an invalid regex: grep <span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>[^>]+> filename.html

I've been nose-deep in regex tutorials for the past day or so, and I'm still not understanding why this doesn't work. If I put the pattern (without backslashes) into a separate file and use `grep -f patternfile filename.html`, I get no error but no matches either. So far as I can figure, the above regex boils down to:
Match the string "<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>", followed by any number of characters that are not a ">", followed by a ">". If someone could tell me where I'm going wrong with this,

Ubuntu :: Use PyRenamer To Identify And Rename Files With Reserved Characters In The File Name / Expression

Aug 2, 2011

I'd like to use pyRenamer to identify and rename files with reserved characters in the file name. The files came from windows where I'm guessing the characters didn't cause problems. For example, I want to replace the ? (question mark), ' (single quote), etc. I tried using the escape () character before the special character in the replace field on the substitutions tab, but for some reason I don't believe that method was identifying the special characters. What is the correct way to identify a special / reserved character within a file name and replace it?

General :: Replace Characters In Txt File?

Nov 7, 2010

I have txt file with list of ID's and I need to insert comma in every line and then remove new line character so it'll become one long string. So to clarify, I have txt file content that looks like this.

... and so on.

but I would like this to change to 234,5466,2356,... I looked at sed and tried to wrap my head around the commands but I guess my brain isn't smart enough. its really confusing for me. I've managed to add commas to end of line (sed "s/$/,/g" filename) but somehow I can't seem to remove new line character from each line.

sed 's/[

]*$//' doesn't seem to work.

General :: Using Sed To Replace String With Special Characters In XML File?

Apr 29, 2011

I am having difficulty getting sed to replace a string of text in an XML file, despite the fact that I have no trouble using grep to find that same string. Since the new string and old string to be replaced contain a lot of special characters, I thought it best to store them in variables as opposed to using a slew of backslashes:

OLD_STRING='<property name="webServiceHost">${jboss.bind.address}</property>'
NEW_STRING='<!--<property name="webServiceHost">${jboss.bind.address}</property>-->'

General :: Search And Replace String Having Multiple Special Characters

Aug 26, 2009

Below is extract of my file:

What I need is to replace "--destination-path=" with "--destination-path=/home/dest"

i.e. desired output is ----destination-path=/home/dest

I could achieve it with below command

$cat outgoing-xfer|grep destination-path|perl -pi -e "s/destination-path=/destination-path=/home/dest/g"

But the problem is that in this case i just wanted to append "/home/dest" for which I could easily escape "/" with just two "", but I wonder if i have a long path like "/a/b/c/d/e/f/g/h/i/j" I will have to escape so many /. Is there any other way by which I can avoid escaping forward slash.

I tried following:

But receiving follo error

Bareword found where operator expected at -e line 1, near "s/destination-path=/'destination-path=/home"
syntax error at -e line 1, near "s/destination-path=/'destination-path=/home"
Bad name after dest' at -e line 1. tried with enclosing in double quotes as well but in vain

Programming :: Executive JavaScript Function Along With URL

Jun 15, 2011

There is this sample web page: [URL] and it has a clickable link / button that executes a JavaScript function: (Right-Click and Copy Shortcut would give this piece of code)

whereas the source code for the link / button is as follows:
<a id="lbtnUpdateStatus" href="javascript:__doPostBack('lbtnUpdateStatus','')">

I want to automate the above function / link along with the said URL so that I won't have to open the webpage and click the button / link. I want a single URL hitting which we won't need to do the extra effort of "clicking the link / button" that executes the JavaScript function given above. I can't automate this task in the source webpage itself because that has to be there as it is for the users who access the webpage. How to achieve it?

I got some useful information here: [URL] but I want to call a javascript function along with a URL such as this:
[URL] javascript:alert("OKAY")
but the above line of code won't work.

Programming :: Trying To Understand This Function In JavaScript

Dec 9, 2010

In my book, this is an example of a recursive algorithm:

var reverseArray = function(x,indx,str) {
return indx == 0 ? str : reverseArray(x,--indx,(str+= " " + x[indx])) ;; }
var arr = new Array('apple','orange','peach','lime');
var str = reverseArray(arr,arr.length,"");
alert(str) ;

I'm trying to understand it, I'm stuck at the (str+= " " + x[indx])) part - that part of the function definition expects an ARGUMENT, am I right? What's being passed to it is a bit of PROGRAM, the str+= stuff. So - how is it working?

Programming :: JavaScript - File Not Recognized As XML By Firefox

Feb 4, 2010

I'm loading an XML file stored in a tiny web server (based on lwip). This web server is not very cooperative and is not marking the http content-type as "text/xml". As result, Firefox is not recognizing the file as xml (IE does) so I can't use DOM methods for parsing the xml file. overrideMimeType("text/xml") should help me avoid this problem but, even having overrided the mymetype, the content-type received is still "text/plain". This is a portion of my JavaScript code:

var xmlObj;
// loadXMLdata is called from the html file
function loadXMLdata() {
var dataFile = window.location.href.substring(0, window.location.href.lastIndexOf("/") + 1) + "config/myfile.xml";
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
xmlObj = new XMLHttpRequest();

// This should override the mimetype...
if (xmlObj.overrideMimeType)
xmlObj.onreadystatechange = fillXMLdata;"GET", dataFile, true);
} else {
alert("Your browser can not handle this script");
return; } }
// fillXMLdata is called from loadXMLdata once the xml object is ready
function fillXMLdata() {
if (xmlObj.readyState == 4) {
// Here Content-Type shows again "text/plain"
var xmlDoc = xmlObj.responseXML.documentElement;
// And here section is null
var section = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("section")[0]; } }
The xml is quite simple:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

2. Lots of small practice exercises that parallel the concepts and syntax being learned.

I've looked at a lot of tutorials, but they all tend to be lacking in one of these areas or the other.
