VBScript Regular Expressions - Official Reference RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    just a small question about regular expressions in VBA (with Microsoft VBScript Regular Expressions 5.5):

    Is there any official reference about how the Regular Expressions dialect used in VBA works, resp. about potential specialities?

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Best regards

  • I've used VBA regex extensively to parse several tool reports and it seems to work the same as any regex.  I finally moved the report processing to Linux and used Ruby.  The expressions moved perfectly.  The only thing I would say is the Linux/Ruby was at least 10X faster.  I use Regex Coach to develop expressions.  It works great.
