Parsing strings with regex into different patterns
Could someone show me a correct syntax. The complete string should consist of only numbers and characters and whitespaces in each pattern except in type. The type and one parm are mandatory. The whitespaces before and after > : are mandatory. The whitespaces after , are mandatory. Several parameters as well as nodes are optional.
GOOD type : param type : par am, para m > no de type : param > node type : param, param2 > node type : param, param2, param3 > node NOTGOOD type: <<< no param type: param <<< because no whitespace after type type : param, <<< , to much type : param, param, > node <<< 1 , after second param to much type : param, param >> node <<< 1 > to much
Thats what i ve now:
Try this regex:
You didn't give an example with multiple nodes, so I didn't know how they would look. This only allows spaces in-between them. If they should have commas, then make the "node" matching group the same as the "params" matching group.
Based on your latest comments, it seems that each param and node can have multiple "words" but no leading or trailing spaces. This also implies that there's only one whitespace character after each :, ,, and >. If this is true, then try this variation of the regex:
