Ooops. Embarassed I screwed this one (5.10) up by working with an outdated source code file. So at least one function disappeared.

5.11 should be better and is available for download.

Does the good Dr still visit here occasionally?

Or does anyone have a copy of string.dll personal in version 5.8 or either of the 5.9 versions Question Or even version 5.5 or 5.7 Question

I have String.dll 5.11 and 5.3 (plus older versions) but I use only 5.3 because I have issues with 5.11

In 5.3 @string@CountRep,Lines) works.
In 5.11 @string@CountRep,Lines) returns the same as @string@CountRep)

If I call @string(RegxRepInFile, a 2nd time in the script and the 2nd operation makes no changes to the file:
5.3 returns 0 as expected.
5.11 returns the number of replacements made by the previous successful operation.

Then in 5.3 @string@Count) also returns 0 as expected.
Again 5.11 @string@Count) returns the number of replacements made by the previous successful @string(RegxRepInFile, operation (not the last operation).


But 5.11 is better than 5.3 in other ways. Like @string(RegxRepInFile, can process multiple lines or the whole file. I have been unable to get @string(RegxRepInFile, in 5.3 to process more than 1 line at a time.

If I could process more than 1 line at a time with @string(RegxRepInFile, and have it return 0 if there was no match I'd be a happy little vegemite.

I've found a solution to @string(RegxRepInFile, returning the number of changes from the previous operation if this operation makes no changes to the file.

Code:
  # Lists used to prevent false result being added to our changes count
  list create,1
  list create,2

  # Workaround for String.dll 5.11 bug - part 1
  # Load file into list to compare after string regxrepinfile op
  list loadfile,1,%%File

  %C = @string(RegxRepInFile,%%File,%%File,%%SearchRegex,%%ReplaceString,)

  # Workaround for String.dll 5.11 bug - part 2
  list loadfile,2,%%File
  rem if @equal(@text(1),@text(2))
  rem We need to compare file hashes as comparing list text ignores case differences (VDS 6 can use CRC32. For VDS 5 use MD5)
  if @equal(@encrypt(@text(1),crc),@encrypt(@text(2),crc))
    # File hasn't changed so ignore string 5.11's false result
    %C = 0
  end


I thought I could now use string.dll 5.11 in my app but I cannot get String.dll 5.11 to obey modifiers. I cannot turn off "dot matches newline" Sad

EDIT: Changed compare file line of code to be case-sensitive.

Yay! Very Happy

I just needed (?m-s) to make 5.11 work the same as 5.3 did.

e.g. in 5.3 this would match a line containing the word 'today'.
Code:
^.*today.*$

In 5.11 I need to use:
Code:
(?m-s)^.*(today).*$


or I can also use:
Code:
(?-s).*(today).*
