Capturing randomness
 
I never did get this fixed but i have a similar issue but a bit more complicated only due to the randomness of what is missing and what is showing.
I'll put a bit of it up here:


Code:
[[ O:10 PE:128 HS:116 ]]


I tried this:

Code:
[~[%s(*)%s~]~]

which will capture, but for the life of me i can't get a working script for the random portions of this.


any ideas would be appreciated, thanks

#TR {~[~[ O:(%d) PE:(%d) HS:(%d) ~]~]} {
$o=%1
$pe=%2
$hs=%3
//Do more stuff with the above local variables
}

The problem i'm having is that they aren't there until i cast them, and then if NOT there, to cast them.
How should i go about setting that up as far as capturing using the provided capture i gave above

If there is nothing there, there will be nothing to capture in the first place so the trigger won't fire...
I'm not sure I understand the issue.
if it's an optional section just use the anonymous variable with a null member: {optional pattern here|}

Perhaps if you show me what you do with a given example of randomness.

well the place holder is this

Code:
[[ ]]


so literally there are 20+ items that could be inside those brackets
I'm trying to find the 'best' way to format a script that can capture each one, and them make further scripts off them

for example:
Code:
[[ O:10 PE:128 HS:116 ]]


the O:10 is a song called 'o muse' of which i have a variable made for when i cast it to on, and when it ends there is a message i set the variable to off.
however it would be MUCH simpler and easier if i could get that to work with a capture with the above caption.

i DID try this though to no avial, as it repeated too often and on too many things so it made what i needed impossible, or i just dont know hw to properly write the script

Code:
[~[%s(*)%s~]~]

[code]#IF %match(%1, "O") {bard.omuse=on} <--- which works, but i couldn't find a way to capture the timer with it!!!

so i tried this:

[code][~[%s(%w)~:(%d)%s~]~] [/code]
and i ticked the repeat within line box to see if it would work, and it did work, however it caused looping, and also rewriting of the variable i set for that!
so i tried this:
[code][~[%s(%w)~:(%d)%s~]~] [/code]
bard.skilln=%1
bard.skillt=%2
#IF (@bard.skilln=="O") {whats the point, again it has no timer!!!}
so yeah, if you could help me get a working script to capture the name of the skill and then the time as well i would be all set!
thanks again for your help!

#TR {~[~[(*)~]~]} {
$list=%replace(%trim(%1), " ", "|")
//needs to do more
}

That pattern should fire weather there is anything inside the brackets or not.
%trim will turn the whitespace into a null value when empty
the %replace will turn whatever is left into a stringlist with each of your timers.

in the above example you would end up with:

$list=O:10|PE:128|HS:116

Code:
#FORALL $list {
  #SWITCH (%match(%i, "O:(%d)", $timer)) {
    bard.omuse=on
    //the timer is in $timer
    }
    (%match(%i, "PE:(%d)", $timer)) {
    //whatever this one does
    //the timer is still $timer
    }
  }


Just expand that out to cover all the possible timers it can hold
