Regular Expression Help
 
Hello,

Could i get help with a regular expression?

I want to differentiate between 2 devices, an ex4200-24f and an ex4550-32f.

In the CLI the lines that i need to match on look like:

Model: ex4200-24f
or
Model: ex4550-32f

I want to pull the 4200 or the 4550 from the CLI, and match on the number

The 4200 will have a different set of snaps and the 4550 will have a different set of snaps.

This is what i got so far setup.

crt.Screen.Synchronous = True
crt.Screen.IgnoreEscape = True

crt.Screen.Send "show version" & vbcr

strOutput = crt.Screen.ReadString(">")

'crt.Dialog.MessageBox strOutput

Set re = New RegExp
re.MultiLine = True
re.Global = True
re.IgnoreCase = True
re.Pattern = "\s(:\s)ex\d+\s" 'Trying to pull the ex4**0- out. looking at the whitespace after the :
'wanting to debug the regex, and see what i found
If re.Test(strOutput) Then
crt.Dialog.MessageBox re.Test(strOutput) ' pulling what the regex found and display it
'crt.Dialog.MessageBox re.Pattern
Else
crt.Dialog.MessageBox "nothing was found"
End If

Thanks

I figured it out! I apologize to waste everyone's time.

I was making it way more difficult than it really should have been.

# $language = "VBScript"
# $interface = "1.0"
crt.Screen.Synchronous = True
crt.Screen.IgnoreEscape = True

crt.Screen.Send "show version" & vbcr

strOutput = crt.Screen.ReadString(">")

'crt.Dialog.MessageBox strOutput

Set re = New RegExp
re.MultiLine = True
re.Global = True
re.IgnoreCase = True
re.Pattern = "4200"
If re.Test(strOutput) Then
'crt.Dialog.MessageBox re.Test(strOutput) ' Will send a true
'crt.Dialog.MessageBox re.Pattern ' Will show me exactly what it finds
crt.Dialog.MessageBox "4200 snaps"
Else
crt.Dialog.MessageBox "4550 Snaps"
End If
