RegEx Question

I have a RegEx pattern style that I haven’t quite mastered yet. Say you have a process line with two sets of numbers in which both are variable. I need one specific set even though both the PID and Byte sizes are variable in size.

I need the 560 only from the ICP.exe line. I can’t find the right Pattern style to grab this.

The Best I can do so far is this for 1,2,3 or 4 digits matches. I feel like this isn’t the most scalable… :slight_smile:

\\\\Grab CorrectLine

\\\\ Grab Correct Process ID

Why not just:


“560” will be in SubExpressionString( 1 ).

Kem is the \x20 allowing 20 spaces? I’m not familiar with that argument.

Thank you for the answer as I think in regex to many times in multiple Steps rather than in one step.

Oh I am using RegExRx right now also.

\\x20 is equivalent to Chr( &h20 ), so it represents a space. \\x20+ means “one or more spaces”. I could have done it like +, but I feel that’s clearer.

You can represent any Unicode character with \\xNN or \\x{N…} where N represents the hexadecimal code point.

Ah Thanks! I just found that under your “Search Pattern” in RegExRx.
