Filter Bad Words Using Regexp

is it possible (i heard u can replace) to filter out bad words using regexp? I'm using Replace() but it sucks without ALOT of extra code... but using regexp it seems better, with ignorecase, etc.

How would I do it? O, here's the way it is now:

<%= Decode(ChkBadWrds("Comment")))%>

How would I do something similar using regexp?

why the following code incorrectly returns 2 as matches count whereas when I change str = "179,80,179,80,179" I get the correct count which is 3?
str = "179,179,179"
num = 179

Set regEx = New RegExp
regEx.Global = true
regEx.IgnoreCase = True
regEx.Pattern = "(^|,)" & num & "($|,)"

Set colMatches = regEx.Execute(str)
response.write colMatches.Count & "<BR>"

RegExp Gods

I have a string which is an html document - I want to eliminate all the <script>blah blah</script> tags. I can't seem to get the regexp pattern right. Here's where I've got to:Code:

Set oReg = New RegExp
oReg.IgnoreCase = True
oReg.Pattern = "(<script[.

Set oMatches = oReg.Execute(sHTML)

For Each oMatch In oMatches
sHTML = Replace(sHTML, oMatch.Value, "")

Vbscript RegExp

I am trying to write an asp(vbscript) parser for wiki-style pseudo code, and
can't get my head round regexp.

I am hoping if somebody could give me an example to work on for one, I could
sort the others.

e.g. how do you turn (from within a large string, with varying occurences)
.......[image:/mydir/pics/my portrait.jpg | A picture of me]......
......<img src="/mydir/pics/my%20portrait.jpg " alt="A picture of me">.....

RegExp Experts

I'm struggling trying to get the concepts of the regExp function down....

What i'm trying to achieve is to remove all white space from html formatted
source code.

I have the following regExp search string to remove all html source code but
that is not what i require.. RegExp.Pattern = "<.*?>"

I want to store all html source code and its text/image contents into a DB.

For that reason i want to remove all line breaks and spacing/tabs within the
source code so as to only have one exteremely long single line leaving the
formatting of the contents of the html code alone all so that i can stuff
into a varchar(MAX) field.

RegExp Question

Premise: Inserting data into a database form a <textarea> and
displaying this data through an HTML page.

When inserting data into a database via a text area and then displaying
this data any carriage return that was entered into the database was
lost. I Created a function to replace a carriage return with a <BR>. I
call this function when I display this data.

If I enter text inside <> into a database and then display this data,
any text that was within the <> is lost because it is considered an
HTML tag. How can I search the string for the brackets and actually
diplay them? I do not want to use Server.HTMLEncode before I insert the
data into the database. This is because we often query the database
from outside a web browser.

Here is my function I have for the carriage return. I need to figure
out how to accomplish this for both < and >. I am sure this is simple
but I do not know what the .pattern should be (for a carriage return it
is "

SET regQuote = New RegExp
regQuote.pattern = "
" = True
catchCR = regQuote.Replace(strText, "<br>")

Do You Have Your Own RegEXp To Validate Your String

I just realized that it's so important to validate each string, I mean
'each' before you insert data from asp page into database.

I guess some customers just copy data from some electronic document and
paste intoform field which it will probably mess up the program.

for example, we have a customer who wants to enter AH12345 into one of our
fields, it appears ??12345 in hidden field of our asp page, but it displayed
AH12345 to the customer, but our program failed because of the data does fit
into char field in sql database.

I don't know in reality, how other companies deal with those kind of thing.
Do I have write our own regExp to validate each string, since we do need to
allow apostrophe or "-" in first name or last name.

Regexp To IGNORE Html

I need to truncate a news article to only show a certain number of characters on the front page. the news articles often contain html and the characters in the html are being counted. So, even though I want the text to be truncated at, say, 350 characters, the final result on the page looks like it's been truncated way further up, because the text of the html added to the character count.

here's the code i'm using to truncate

URLFunction ChopLastWord( Line, Length )
If Len(Line) < Length Then
ChopLastWord = Line
Exit Function
End If
Dim spaceat
spaceat = InStrRev( Line, " ", Length )
If spaceat < Length-20 Then spaceat = Length ' value of 20 is arbitrary
ChopLastWord = Left( Line, spaceat ) & "..."
End Function

REGEXP Uppercases And Double Quotes

I'm trying to solve three minor problems with vbscript REGEXP.

1) I want to find any occurences of and|or|not in a string and capitalize them.

regEx.Pattern = "(s)(and|or|not)(s)"
KW = trim(regEx.Replace(KW, "$1" & ucase("$2") & "$3"))

how come this is not working?

2) when highlighting words (in a search results page for example), I want to match the word ignoring case. however, when wrapping the word in highlighting code and replacing the substring, I want to keep the original capitalization.

regEx.Pattern = "(^|s|[^a-z0-9])" & highlitetemp(iTemp) & "(s|$|[^a-z0-9])"
Body = trim(regEx.Replace(Body, "$1<span class=highlite>" & highlitetemp(iTemp) & "</span>$2"))

for example, if the word to match is marvelous, but the word is stored uppercase in the db, the above code will replace the word with a lowercase version. how do I get around this?

3) I want to remove any and|or that are not inside double quotes in a string. for example,

test = """The dog and the cat""" & " and fox or mouse " & """the cat and the dog"""

resulting in "The dog and the cat" and fox or mouse "the cat and the dog"

I would like to remove only the AND OR linking fox and mouse in the middle of the string. how would I do that?

Trimming Words

I have a database field that is a memo type. I would like to be able to only display the first 50 words from the database. I would like for it to show ..... after about 50 words.

I am using <%=Content %>. How do I trim this field to show only 50 words and then ....?

I tried the following code:
Function LengthTrim(input, length)
If Len(input) > length Then
Return Left(input, length) + "..."
Return input

End Function

then <%= LengthTrim(Content, 50) %>

But it would not work. I got the following error message:

Replacing Whole Words

i am having trouble getting my REPLACE fn. to replace whole words only. basically, i'm running a 'spelling checker' fn. that uses the REPLACE fn. to find incorrect spellings and replace them. problem is, the fn. seems to replace all instances of a string, and not a whole word only as I intend it to be:

Code as follows:

StrInput = Request.Form("BKM_Search")
StrInput = LCase(StrInput) 'convert all to lowercase
StrInput = Trim(StrInput)'trim all empty space b4 & after string
StrCorrect = Replace(a_StrWrong, a_StrRight,1,1,1)

Let's say I want to replace the word "sea" with "ZZZ" only:

Example input: "Sean has some neat sea shells"
Example output: "ZZZn has some neat ZZZ shells"

I've got a website that I've been making some changes too as of late. It's not my website so I've been learning a lot, especially since I'm fairly new to coding and webdesign. So keep in mind, I'm just a newb. If there's not enough info here to allow anyone to help, just say so and I'll figure it out on my own. Here's my problem...

This site I'm working on has all kinds of directories and allows certain people within a company to upload files to certain directories. I've got a .asp file that shows all of the content providers for all directories in a table.

I want to make it so that in my directorylist.php file there's a button that will allow a user to click on this "View Content Providers for this Directory" button and it will read/filter this asp file, and spit out a list of only the users who have authority to upload files to that particular directory that the user is looking at.

Is there some way to link the two files to do that? Or is it just a change I need to make in the loop in the asp file or perhaps a change in the php file? I'll provide a piece of code from the .asp file. Code:
