Hi,

Can I get some help with a regex code for C#.

Here is my starting line of text.

<![LOG[==========[ ccmsetup started in process 3172 ]==========]LOG]!><time="14:32:31.717-600" date="07-29-2013" component="ccmsetup" context="" type="1" thread="908" file="ccmsetup.cpp:9100">==========[ ccmsetup started in process 3172 ]==========]LOG]!><time="14:32:31.717-600" date="07-29-2013" component="ccmsetup" context="" type="1" thread="908" file="ccmsetup.cpp:9100">

Open in new window


I want to capture the following fields.

<![LOG[Data in here]LOG]!>

So the first captured field would be:

==========[ ccmsetup started in process 3172 ]==========

The next field the time:  14:32:31.717-600

the date:

07-29-2013

component:

ccmsetup

and finally the thread:

908

And also have this match over multiple lines so I can read the whole file into one string and have it parse it all in one hit.

Thanks,

Ward.

This regex seemed to work well for me, though it trips up on the 'type' attrib(because of the "" before it); however if you don't care about anything after 'thread', then you should be set! :-)

(\w+)?=\"?(.+?)(?=\]log|")
