jj2007 -- one reason, you could create a new utopia in your own dinner time.

Code: Select all

Function TALLY(SomeString As String,PartString As String) As Long
    Dim As Long LenP=Len(PartString),count
    Dim As Long position=Instr(SomeString,PartString)

    Dim As integer found , n , staid , m
    Var Lf = Len(find) , Lr = Len(replace) , Lo = Len(original)
    Dim As integer x = Len(original) - t * Lf + t * Lr 'length of output string
    dim As String res = String(x , 0)            'output string
        If original[n] = find[0] Then            'got a possible
            For m = 0 To Lf - 1
                If original[n + m] <> find[m] Then Goto lbl 'nope

Here the function StringCount() returning the occurrence only using RegEx.

Code: Select all

'libpcre.a needed in lib folder!
#Ifdef __Fb_64bit__
   #Libpath "lib\win64\"
   #Libpath "lib\win32\"

#Include ""

Function StringRegEx(sPattern As String, sString As String, aArr() As String) As Integer 'coded by UEZ
   Const iStrVecCnt = 300

   Dim As Zstring Ptr pErrorStr, pSubStrMatchStr
   Dim As Long iErrOffset, iRegexExec, aStrVec(iStrVecCnt - 1), iResult = 0, i, j = 0, k = 1
   Dim As pcre_extra tRegexStudy
   Dim As pcre Ptr pRegexCompiled
   Dim As pcre_extra Ptr pRegexStudy

   Erase aArr
   Redim aArr(0 To iStrVecCnt)
   pRegexCompiled = pcre_compile(sPattern, 0, @pErrorStr, @iErrOffset, NULL)
   If pRegexCompiled = NULL Then
      Return iResult
   End If
   pRegexStudy = pcre_study(pRegexCompiled, 0, @pErrorStr)
   If pRegexStudy = NULL Then
      Return iResult
   End If
      iRegexExec = pcre_exec(pRegexCompiled, pRegexStudy, Strptr(sString), Len(sString), j, 0, @aStrVec(0), iStrVecCnt)
      If iRegexExec > 0 Then
         For i = 0 To iRegexExec - 1
            pcre_get_substring(Strptr(sString), @aStrVec(0), iRegexExec, i, @pSubStrMatchStr)
            If k > Ubound(aArr) Then Redim Preserve aArr(0 To (Ubound(aArr) Shr 1))
            aArr(k) = *pSubStrMatchStr
            k += 1
         iResult += 1
         j = aStrVec(1)
   Loop Until iRegexExec < 1
   Redim Preserve aArr(0 To k - 1)
   aArr(0) = Str(iResult)

   Return iResult
End Function

Function __ArrayToString(aArr() As String) as String
   Dim As String sResult
   For i As Integer = 1 To Ubound(aArr)
      sResult &= aArr(i) & Chr(10, 13)
   Next i
   Return sResult
End Function

Function StringCount(sInput As String, sSearch As String, bCaseSensitive As Boolean = False) As String
   Dim As String aResult()
   If bCaseSensitive Then
      If StringRegEx(sSearch, sInput, aResult()) = 0 Then Return "0"
      If StringRegEx("(?i)" & sSearch, sInput, aResult()) = 0 Then Return "0"
   Return aResult(0)
End Function

Dim As String sString = "When processing source files, FreeBASIC can parse ASCII files with Unicode escape sequences (\u), or UTF-8, UTF-16LE, UTF-16BE, UTF-32LE and UTF-32BE files, as long as they were saved with Byte Order Mark (BOM)."
? "String to test: "
? sString
? "Found all u: " & StringCount(sString, "u")
? "Found U only: " & StringCount(sString, "U", True)
? "Found all UTF: " & StringCount(sString, "UTF")
? "Found numbers only: " & StringCount(sString, "[\d+]+")



Code: Select all

String to test:
When processing source files, FreeBASIC can parse ASCII files with Unicode escape sequences (\u), or UTF-8, UTF-16LE, UT
F-16BE, UTF-32LE and UTF-32BE files, as long as they were saved with Byte Order Mark (BOM).

Found all u: 9
Found U only: 6
Found all UTF: 5
Found numbers only: 5
