digitalmars.D.learn - ctRegex - named submatch

reply "Daniel" <wyrlon gmx.net> writes:
Hi,

I tried using named submatch for ctRegex... it works but 
seemingly only for maximum 1 named submatch...

OK (\w changed to \S to avoid, out of memory)
`(?P<var>\S+)\s*=\s*(\d+);`
`(?\S+)\s*=\s*(?P<value>\d+);`

NOT OK
`(?P<var>\w+)\s*=\s*(?P<value>\d+);`

Is this a known bug? I used the regex example from the Library 
Reference, converting it to ctRegex...

Lookup named submatch.
import std.regex;
import std.range;

auto m = match("a = 42;", 
regex(`(?P<var>\w+)\s*=\s*(?P<value>\d+);`));
auto c = m.captures;
assert(c["var"] == "a");
assert(c["value"] == "42");
popFrontN(c, 2);
//named groups are unaffected by range primitives
assert(c["var"] =="a");
assert(c.front == "42");

I know it's hitting assert failure during parse. It's a CTFE bug, there are some other limitations but they are not in bugzilla yet. That all being said experimental tag on ctRegex in DDoc is here for a reason, and that is: ctRegex can't compile nor match full regex testsuite. (out of memory + bugs)

Understood, thanks for your quick response nevertheless. :) There are different errors depending on which of the two captures is attempted to be accessed. auto m = match("a = 42;", ctRegex!(`(?P<var>\S+)\s*=\s*(?P<value>\d+);`)); auto c = m.captures; // c["var"]; => core.exception.RangeError std.regex(2145): Range violation // c["value"]; => Object.Exception C:\D\dmd2\windows\bin\..\..\src\phobos\std\regex.d(2145): no su bmatch named value

(it's just it). File this as bug please, including the example. -- Dmitry Olshansky

 Great! I never tried ;) Should just work though...
