Splitting XML on end tags

Splitting XML on end tags

    I'm so frustrated on this one. I use this function on another XML tag group and it works fine. The only thing I've changed is the starting tag string. So what this script is supposed to do. It selects the <emergproccl> to end tag </emergproccl>. Then spilts the found tags by end procedure tag </procedure> and creates new file for each </procedure>. Each new file has some other functions it performs, but that's not what's important. I need to understand why the <emergproccl> to </emergproccle> tags aren't splitting. Files attached. Thank you for the help.

    Test javascript

    Code: Select all

    var eSplitString = "</procedure>";
    // String where to split. The split occurs after next character.
    filePath = 'C:\\Test\\Bursting Documents\\TEST';
    // Path to put spliced files in
    //filePath = UltraEdit.getString("Directory to place files in", 1);
    //Append a backslash if it is missing at end of the directory string.
    if (filePath.match(/\\$/) === null) filePath += "\\";
    //UniqID = UltraEdit.getString("Enter a UNIQUE ID for this manual", 1);
    UniqID = "TEST";
    
    function emergproccl() {
        if (UltraEdit.document.length) { // Is any file open?
           // Set working environment required for this job.
           UltraEdit.insertMode();
           if (typeof(UltraEdit.columnModeOff) == "function") UltraEdit.columnModeOff();
           else if (typeof(UltraEdit.activeDocument.columnModeOff) == "function") UltraEdit.activeDocument.columnModeOff();
           UltraEdit.activeDocument.hexOff();
           UltraEdit.perlReOn();

      There is a large selection made after execution of

      Code: Select all

      UltraEdit.activeDocument.gotoLineSelect(nLine1, nColumn1);
      Then after some work with the selected block there is executed

      Code: Select all

      if (UltraEdit.activeDocument.findReplace.find(eSplitString))
      This find is executed after end of current selection which is after </emergproccl> to end of the file. There is no string </procedure> from position after </emergproccl> up to bottom of the file. So the condition evaluates always to false and no file splitting is done at all.

      Insert above the IF condition:

      Code: Select all

      UltraEdit.activeDocument.top();
      Then the IF condition is true and the script processing continues inside the condition and JavaScript core reports an error in script because of FoundsPerFile is not defined at all.

      The function code up to the IF condition can be simplified to:

      Code: Select all

      function emergproccl() {
         if (UltraEdit.document.length < 1) return; // Is any file open?
      
         // Set working environment required for this job.
         UltraEdit.insertMode();
         if (typeof(UltraEdit.columnModeOff) == "function") UltraEdit.columnModeOff();
         else if (typeof(UltraEdit.activeDocument.columnModeOff) == "function") UltraEdit.activeDocument.columnModeOff();
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.hexOff();
         UltraEdit.perlReOn();
      
         // Move cursor to top of active file and run the initial search.
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.top();
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.findReplace.searchDown=true;
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.findReplace.matchCase=true;
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.findReplace.matchWord=false;
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.findReplace.regExp=false;
      
         // Select everything in parent elements
         if (!UltraEdit.activeDocument.findReplace.find('<emergproccl')) return;
         var nLine1 = UltraEdit.activeDocument.currentLineNum;
         var nColumn1 = UltraEdit.activeDocument.currentColumnNum - 12;
         if (!UltraEdit.activeDocument.findReplace.find("</emergproccl>")) return;
      
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.key("LEFT ARROW");
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.key("RIGHT ARROW");
         UltraEdit.activeDocument.gotoLineSelect(nLine1, nColumn1);
      
         // Get the title string of element title below element emergproccl.
         var emergproc = UltraEdit.activeDocument.selection;
         var emergprocSTitle = emergproc.replace(/^<emergproccl.*?>\s*<title>(.+?)<\/title>[\s\S]*$/g,"$1");
         if (emergprocSTitle.length == emergproc.length) emergprocSTitle = "No Title";
         UltraEdit.outputWindow.write("emergprocSTitle " + emergprocSTitle);
      
         // Get the emergproc content as array of strings with splitting the
         // file on each occurrence of end tag of XML element procedure.
         var asProcedures = emergproc.split("</procedure>");
      
         // The last string in array must be always ignored.
         asProcedures.pop();
         var nProcedureCount = asProcedures.length;
         UltraEdit.outputWindow.write("Emerg Proc Count: " + nProcedureCount);
      
         // Do nothing if the file does not contain procedure elements at all.
         if (!nProcedureCount) return;
      
      However, it is really unclear for me why selecting the block at all, why getting the title string, and how the file should be really split up.

        Hi Mofi
        Thanks for the feedback. So the script needs to select everything in a <normproccl>\s\S</normproccl> element. It must retrieve the <normproccl><title>. Then for every <procedure> in the <normproccl> Create a new file. In the new file the <normproccl><title> is added to the start of the file, followed by 10 <procedures>. So every new file would be like this.

        Code: Select all

        //Get the <normproccl> element and copy it with its <title> element for use on all new files created.
        <normproccl> <title>YECURG DORMPEEEERSNC</title> 
        <secttoc autobuild="1">
         //First XML to copy into a new file.
        <procedure emergency="0" verstatus="ver" newpage="1"> 
        <title>ATOBR</title> 
        <clstep1 verstatus="ver"> <clitem> <emphasis type="b">HTROLTTE</emphasis> </clitem>
        </procedure>
        //Second XML to copy into a new file.
        <procedure>
        <title>ATOBR</title>
        <clstep1> <clitem> <emphasis type="b">HTROLTTE</emphasis> </clitem>
        </procedure>
        Results after script

        Code: Select all

        //First new file
        <normproccl> <title>YECURG DORMPEEEERSNC</title>
        [size=50]//First XML to copy into a new file.[/size]
        <procedure emergency="0" verstatus="ver" newpage="1">
        <title>ATOBR</title>
        <clstep1 verstatus="ver"> <clitem> <emphasis type="b">HTROLTTE</emphasis> </clitem>
        </procedure>
        </normproccl>
        
        //Second XML to copy into a new file.
        <normproccl> <title>YECURG DORMPEEEERSNC</title>
        <procedure>
        <title>ATOBR</title>
        <clstep1> <clitem> <emphasis type="b">HTROLTTE</emphasis> </clitem>
        </procedure>
        </normproccl>
        So what needs to happen.
        1.  Select the whole <normproccl>.*?</normproccl> node. Store in a variable to perform searches in.
        2. Get the <normproccl><title>.*?<title> node. Store in a variable for use later.
        3. For each <procedure>.*?</procedure> found. Make a new file with it. Add the <normproccl><title>.*?<title> tags, then paste the <procedure> block into it.
        4. Do this for 10 <procedures found.
        5. Save file and move on to next <procedure> block.

        My new code splits up the <normproccl> group of elements, but the count is wrong. It's returning 8 files (80 procedures) when there are only 57 procedures in the file. I don't understand what's going wrong.

        Code: Select all

        function normproccl() {
            UltraEdit.activeDocument.top();
            // Set working environment required for this job.
