Regexp


#1

Hello!

Anyone who can help me with this. If i have a string and want to take
out a sub string of that by regexp.

  1. string = “Today is it monday after work. blah blah.”
    or
  2. string2 = “monday morning. Nice day today.”

And i would like to get a certain line with the word monday in it.
Like results below.

  1. result = “Today is it monday after work”
  2. result2 = “monday morning”

Thanks
Svea


#2

simple, but for sure not perfect:

/(?:.?.)(.?monday.?)./.match()[1]

e.g.:
/(?:.?.)(.?monday.?)./.match(‘asdasd . asdas dasd .it is monday
morning. hello world’)[1]
=> “it is monday morning”

Regards
Clemens

So you want the sentence, not including the period? What if there is a
preceding sentence?

Try
puts string[/[^.][Mm]onday[^.]/]

Thanks for the fast reply.
Works nice for stripping the last part but not the first.
I get the lines before also.

/(?:.?.)(.?monday.?)./.match(‘asdasd . asdas dasd .it is monday
morning. hello world’)
=> asdasd . asdas dasd .it is monday morning.

e.g.:
/(?:.?.)(.?monday.?)./.match(‘asdasd . asdas dasd .it is monday
morning. hello world’)[1]
=> “it is monday morning”

Never mind i forgott [1]
Thanks again

/(?:.?.)(.?monday.?)./.match(‘asdasd . asdas dasd .it is monday
morning. hello world’)
=> asdasd . asdas dasd .it is monday morning.

e.g.:
/(?:.?.)(.?monday.?)./.match(‘asdasd . asdas dasd .it is monday
morning. hello world’)[1]
=> “it is monday morning”
