I would like to start new public investigation on LoadRunner regexp (regular expressions).
The reward is $52.25.
As you know, LoadRunner supports limited and 'light' regular expressions. These are special text flags of web_reg_save_param function to support 'light' LoadRunner regular expressions:
- /DIG interprets the pound sign (#) as a wildcard for a single digit.
For example, "te##xt" matches for "te23xt", and doesn't match for "text" and "te234xt".
interprets the caret sign (^) as a wildcard for a single US–ASCII alphanumeric character.
There are three syntaxes: ALNUMIC to ignore case, ALNUMLC to match only lower case, and ALNUMUC to match only upper case.
For example, with ALNUMLC flag enabled, "te^^xt" matches for "tenext", and doesn't match for "teNext" and "teneoxt".
How to use real regular expressions in LoadRunner with C language?
Note: you can use real regexps with VBScript or Java. With standard LoadRunner C language this is not easy task!
I tried to use PCRE, but LoadRunner generated memory exception.
All I want is to process regexp templates, like:
- Windows(?=95 |98 |NT|XP)
- and so on
I think, such use of money will be honest. My readers helped me to earn them, and I plan to investigate them to resolve LoadRunner community question.
Well, if you have ideas on LoadRunner regular expressions, please describe them on your site or blog and send me the link.
Let's work together!
Waiting for your solutions & comments.
Thank you, LoadRunner beginners & professionals.
