I've been trying to get a regular expression to work for my code for a while and am wondering if anyone knows a better way.
I've got a big chunk of text to parse and want to split it into an array based on the lines. This would be straightforward, right? Using regex:
var re:RegExp = /\n/; arr = content.split(re);
Easy. But I also want to only split on lines that do not have a space after them. I figured I'd use the \S character to match anything with a non-space character after the \n.
var re:RegExp = /\n\S/; arr = content.split(re);
However, this now removes the first letter of every line I'm splitting (because it's matching those letters).
What's the best way to:
- Ignore the spaces by using a caret (I tried something like
/\n^\' '/but no luck)?
- Not lose that
\Scharacter when splitting the string into an array?
