Look ahead condition

Hi,
may be the heading of the post is not right but i dont know how to
explain this.

basically.

suppose you have an array which has value like this

Check Fault Check :

Check Chassis fault :

Check email :
DISK WARNING - usage: C: 36797 MB (90%) 2013-10-08 11:12:35

What i want to do is :

if i find a line which is example : "Check Fault Check : " ( which end
with : )
i want to know if there are any other lines under this line or not, if
there is not then i want to delete “Check Fault Check”

So basically
i want to delete bellow 2 lines as there is not any thing under those
line which does not END With “:”
Check Fault Check :
Check Chassis fault :

but I want to keep “Check email :” as there is a line under that…

Can this be done ??

please let me know

It sounds as if you only want to delete empty lines. That’s fairly
easy. One way

File.foreach “your.file” do |line|
puts line unless /^\s*$/ =~ line
end

There are other ways with command line utilities, e.g.

$ egrep -v ‘^[[:space:]]*$’ your.file

Does that help?

Kind regards

If I understand what you want (I’m not sure I do), try something like
this.
Someone else can probably give you a better regular expression. I’m not
sure this is a good one.
This reminds me that I need to devote more time to studying about
regular
expressions.

str = "Check Fault Check :

Check Chassis fault :

Check email :
DISK WARNING - usage: C: 36797 MB (90%) 2013-10-08 11:12:35

test:

"

print str.gsub(/.+:\s*\n+(?=.+:\s*\n+|\n+$)/,"")

Dear Fosiul,

One way to do this would be to convert the content (I see you actually
say array, in which case, that reduces one step) to a some structure
and operate on that, then output that structure in the required
format. This enables the main structure to be converted into a hash,
filtered further, or similar.

Perhaps you might find the following example useful (this could be
simplified further):

content = " ... (text content) ... ".split("\n")

structure = content.slice_before(/:$/).select { |e|
    e.count { |e| !e.empty? } > 1 }

output = structure.flatten.join("\n")

An ordered explanation of the stages in structure is:

    • .slice_before(/:$/) : break the array by : at end of line
    • .select { … } : filter the array …
    • e.count { |e| !e.empty? } > 1 : … by including only subarrays
      which have more than merely the ‘key’ (e.g. ‘Check email :’)

Peace,
tiredpixel

p.s. A slightly shorter way of writing

would be to flip the logic and use

structure = content.slice_before(/:$/).reject { |e|
    e.count(&:empty?) > 1 }

allowing the count-block to be collapsed into the shortform.

Ah, now I see I misunderstand the task. Here’s my regexp:

$ ./x.rb
Check email :
DISK WARNING - usage: C: 36797 MB (90%) 2013-10-08 11:12:35

$ cat x.rb
#!/bin/ruby

content = DATA.read

content.gsub! %r{^[\w\s]+:\s*$\s*(?=^[\w\s]+:\s*$|\z)}m, ‘’

puts content

END
Check Fault Check :

Check Chassis fault :

Check email :
DISK WARNING - usage: C: 36797 MB (90%) 2013-10-08 11:12:35

$

Not really sure whether that is better. In theory at least my version
should cope with different line endings; I did not test that though.

If the data is to be further processed then parsing into a proper data
structure would probably look different, e.g.

$ ./xx.rb
[#<struct Check
name=“Check email”,
results=[“DISK WARNING - usage: C: 36797 MB (90%) 2013-10-08
11:12:35”]>]
$ cat xx.rb
#!/bin/ruby

Check = Struct.new :name, :results

content = DATA.read
items = []
item = nil

content.each_line do |line|
line.chomp!

case line
when /^\s*([\w\s]+?)\s*:\s*$/
items << item if item
item = Check.new $1, []
when /^\s*$/
# ignore
else
item.results << line if item
end
end

items << item if item
items.reject! {|it| it.results.empty?}

require ‘pp’
pp items

END
Check Fault Check :

Check Chassis fault :

Check email :
DISK WARNING - usage: C: 36797 MB (90%) 2013-10-08 11:12:35

Check x:

$
