Pythonscript :RuntimeError



  • The following command in python script should delete any spaces in a local path:

    editor.rereplace (r "((\ w) +) ((\ s) *) \ / ((\ s) *) ((\ _) *) ((\ w) +) (\. html | \. htm) ", r" $ 1 \ / $ 7 $ 9 $ 11 ")
    

    if it weren’t for the following error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
       File "C: \ Users \ Jack \ AppData \ Roaming \ Notepad ++ \ plugins \ Config \ PythonScript \ scripts \ $ variables.py", line 1, in <module>
         editor.rereplace (r "((\ w) +) ((\ s) *) ((\ s) *) ((\ w) +) (\. html | \ .htm)", r "$ 1 $ 7 $ 9 ") #document URL spaces
    : Ran out of stack space trying to match the regular expression.
    

    Any suggestions? thank you

    Ran out of stack space trying to match the regular expression.

    This part of the error message is telling you that your regular expression search string is too complicated.

    I believe that your only option is to find a way to make it simpler.



  • Hi, thanks for the reply. Now works. I just replaced “\ w” with [a-zA-Z0-9] which would be its equivalent. If it’s simpler, I don’t know, but it’s certainly synonymous.



  • Hello, @claudio-pergolin and All,

    You said :

    Well, not exactly !!

    For instance :

    • Open Notepad++

    • If necessary, select the Courier New font, in the Style Configurator

    • Open a new tab ( Ctrl + N )

    • If necessary, convert it as an UTF-8 encoded file ( Encoding > Convert to UTF-8 )

    • Paste this long line, below :

    !"#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ[]^_`abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz{|}~ ¡¢£¤¥¦§¨©ª«¬­®¯°±²³´µ¶·¸¹º»¼½¾¿ÀÁÂÃÄÅÆÇÈÉÊËÌÍÎÏÐÑÒÓÔÕÖ×ØÙÚÛÜÝÞßàáâãäåæçèéêëìíîïðñòóôõö÷øùúûüýþÿĀāĂ㥹ĆćĈĉĊċČčĎďĐđĒēĔĕĖėĘęĚěĜĝĞğĠġĢģĤĥĦħĨĩĪīĬĭĮįİıIJijĴĵĶķĸĹĺĻļĽľĿŀŁłŃńŅņŇňʼnŊŋŌōŎŏŐőŒœŔŕŖŗŘřŚśŜŝŞşŠšŢţŤťŦŧŨũŪūŬŭŮůŰűŲųŴŵŶŷŸŹźŻżŽžſƏƒƠơƯưǍǎǏǐǑǒǓǔǕǖǗǘǙǚǛǜǺǻǼǽǾǿəˆˇˉ˘˙˚˛˜˝̣̀́̃̉;΄΅Ά·ΈΉΊΌΎΏΐΑΒΓΔΕΖΗΘΙΚΛΜΝΞΟΠΡΣΤΥΦΧΨΩΪΫάέήίΰαβγδεζηθικλμνξοπρςστυφχψωϊϋόύώЁЂЃЄЅІЇЈЉЊЋЌЎЏАБВГДЕЖЗИЙКЛМНОПРСТУФХЦЧШЩЪЫЬЭЮЯабвгдежзийклмнопрстуфхцчшщъыьэюяёђѓєѕіїјљњћќўџҐґҒғҖҗҚқҜҝҢңҮүҰұҲҳҸҹҺһӘәӨөְֱֲֳִֵֶַָֹֻּֽ־ֿ׀ׁׂ׃אבגדהוזחטיךכלםמןנסעףפץצקרשתװױײ׳״،؛؟ءآأؤإئابةتثجحخدذرزسشصضطظعغـفقكلمنهوىيًٌٍَُِّْ٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩٪٫٭ٰٱٴپچژڤکگیەۤ۰۱۲۳۴۵۶۷۸۹ẀẁẂẃẄẅẠạẢảẤấẦầẨẩẪẫẬậẮắẰằẲẳẴẵẶặẸẹẺẻẼẽẾếỀềỂểỄễỆệỈỉỊịỌọỎỏỐốỒồỔổỖỗỘộỚớỜờỞởỠỡỢợỤụỦủỨứỪừỬửỮữỰựỲỳỴỵỶỷỸỹ‌‍‎‏–—―‗‘’‚‛“”„†‡•…

    • Open the Mark dialog ( Ctrl + M )

    • Tick the Purge for each search and Wrap around options

    • Un-tick all the other options

    • Select the Regular expression search mode

    • Now try, successively, the regexes [a-zA-Z0-9] and \w against this text : Quite different, isn’t it ?

    BTW, note that, in addition to Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew and Arabic lowercase and uppercase letters, digits, letters-like and numbers-like characters, the \w regex also matches the underscore char ( _ ) !

    Best Regards,

  • thanks for the tip to both of you
