Extract Text using RegTex

Hi,

Id like to create a RegEX to extract the left text until the first “)” character.

For example:

In the list below:

Interface ClientA(CLIENTA): Bits received
Interface ClientB(CLIENTB): Bits received
Interface ClientC(CLIENTC): Bits received
Interface ClientD(CLIENTD): Bits received

Id like to extract only the list below using RegEX. And I cannot use “:” as delimeter:

Interface ClientA(CLIENTA)
Interface ClientA(CLIENTB)
Interface ClientA(CLIENTC)
Interface ClientA(CLIENTD)

Could someone help me ,please?

Thanks

Paulo

Hi @estatica ,

Regular expressions are quite flexible, so there are many different ways to capture this substring. I would play around with regex101.com. Here is one solution that uses several metacharacters and a positive lookahead assertion.

keep in mind that this regular expression assumes that each line starts with Interface. If that’s not the case, then we’ll have to adjust things.

Thanks Matt
