Feature wish: case options for regex replace

Postby Stefan » Mon Jun 27, 2005 10:33 am

Hi Jim, how are you?

Is it possible for you to add this features
to regex replace options ?

\L  ower, all chars
\U  pper, all chars
\S  entence, only the very first char in the sentence upper
\W ords, every first char of all words upper
\C  owboy, rANdom cASe


i.e.

i have e.g. this file
==> the goo goo dolls - give a little bit.mp3


i wanna regex search for
===> (.+) - (.+)(\.mp3)


and regex replace with
===> \1\W - \2\S\3\U


to get
===> The Goo Goo Dolls - Give a little bit.MP3



would be nice :D
thanks,
stefan

Hi Stefan,

Unfortunately I am constrained by the fucntionality of the PCRE library. I do not know if there is a more recent version of the DLL available which supports these functions.

I'am think that's no issue of regex
but of your own code.

You should try to catch the regex output,
and if a "\U" is found,
change all chars to upper
till an other "\x" option is given
or the output ends.

(Maybe an other char like $ for $U, $L ... will be better?)


Sorry if i didn't find they correctly words, i don't wanna push you!

----

Easy to wrote but hard to code,
but i saw such features in other renamer
so i just ask you if you could do that too ;-)


Togehter with my other wish "excaption list for case change"
BRU will become my favorite [MP3] renamer
for i didn't want to carry diverrent tools with my USB stick :wink: <== smilys don't work ?
