RegExp replace

1 New Member
I have a problem with my RegExp.

I need to replace some URLs with other URLs. I am using a URL-rewrite filter). The problem is that when the RegExp match just parts of the string, it does a replace anyway. I want it to only replace if it matches the entire targetstring.

Target strings might be like this:

1: /news/public.asp?myid =1234
2: /justadirectory
3: /justadirectory/
4: /justadirectory/something
5: /justafile.html
6: /directorywhith. dot
7: /directorywhith. dot/

If I make a RegExp like this:

(/[a-z]{3,20}/?)
It matches targetstring 2 and 3, but it also matches parts of the other strings.

Is there any why to say that it needs to match the entire string to do the replace, otherwise don’t replace the parts that you do math?

Hi All, I want to strip the accents off characters in a string so that, for example, the (Spanish) word "práctico" comes out as "practico" - but ignoring case, so that "PRÁCTICO" comes out as "PRACTICO". What's the best way to do this? TIA,

I am weak when it comes to regexp but hoped someone might know in this case. I am trying to take a url like this : something.lasso?blah=blah&blah2=blah2&sort=hello&blah3=blah3 And remove the &sort=XXX without hurting the rest of the url. The parameter to be replaced would be a parameter passed to a function. Here is what I have so far: function refresh(item) {

I need to come up with a function function regExpPos (text, re, parenNum) { ... } that will return the position within text of RegExp.$parenNum if there is a match, and -1 otherwise. For example: var re = /some(thing|or other)?.*(n(est)(?:ed)?.*(parens) )/ var text = "There were some nesting parens in the test"; alert (regExpPos (text, re, 3));

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
