WordRepl()

Replacement of double characters

Syntax

      WordRepl( <cDoubleCharacterSearchString>, <[@]cString>,
                <cDoubleCharacterReplaceString>, [<lMode>] ) -> <cString>

Arguments

<cDoubleCharacterSearchString> is a string of double characters that should be replaced

<[@]cString>is the processed string

<cDoubleCharacterReplaceString> is a string of double characters that replace the one of <cSearchString>

[<lMode>] sets the replacement method (see description) Default: .F.

Returns

<cString> the processed string

Description

The WordRepl() takes the double characters of <cDoubleCharacterSearchString> one after the other and searches for them in <cString>. For <lMode> set to .F., this search is successful, if the double character sequence in <cString> starts at an odd position or at any position, if <lMode> is set to .T.

If this happens, the double character sequence will be replaced with the corresponding double character sequence of <cDoubleCharacter ReplaceString>. If <cDoubleCharacter ReplaceString> is shorter than <cDoubleCharacter SearchString> the last double sequence of <cDoubleCharacter ReplaceString> is used for the “rest” of <cDoubleCharacter SearchString>. Note that the last double character sequence in “AABBC” is “BB” in this context !!

After the replacement the function restarts the search in <cString> BEHIND the replacement if the CSETATMUPA() switch is turned off, or BEHIND the first character of the replacement if the switch is turned on. (see examples for this !) One can omit the return value of this function by setting the CSETREF() to .T., but one must then pass <cString> by reference to get a result.

Examples

      ? WordRepl( "CC", "AABBCCDDEE", "XX" ) // "AABBXXDDEE"
      ? WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba" )      // "1abaa"
      ? WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba", .T. ) // "1baba"
      csetatmupa( .T. )
      ? WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba" )      // "1abaa"
      ? WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba", .T. ) // "1bbba"

Tests

      WordRepl( "CC", "AABBCCDDEE", "XX" ) == "AABBXXDDEE"
      WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba" )      == "1abaa"
      WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba", .T. ) == "1baba"
      Eval( {|| csetatmupa( .T. ), WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba" ) } ) == "1abaa"
      Eval( {|| csetatmupa( .T. ), WordRepl( "aa", "1aaaa", "ba", .T. ) } ) == "1bbba"
