pyparsing v2.2.2 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-09-01 // over 3 years ago
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed bug in SkipTo, if a SkipTo expression that was skipping to an expression that returned a list (such as an And), and the SkipTo was saved as a named result, the named result could be saved as a ParseResults - should always be saved as a string. Issue #28, reported by seron.

    • Added simple_unit_tests.py, as a collection of easy-to-follow unit tests for various classes and features of the pyparsing library. Primary intent is more to be instructional than actually rigorous testing. Complex tests can still be added in the unitTests.py file.

    • ๐Ÿ†• New features added to the Regex class:

      • optional asGroupList parameter, returns all the capture groups as a list
      • optional asMatch parameter, returns the raw re.match result
      • new sub(repl) method, which adds a parse action calling re.sub(pattern, repl, parsed_result). Simplifies creating Regex expressions to be used with transformString. Like re.sub, repl may be an ordinary string (similar to using pyparsing's replaceWith), or may contain references to capture groups by group number, or may be a callable that takes an re match group and returns a string.

      For instance: expr = pp.Regex(r"([Hh]\d):\s*(.*)").sub(r"<\1>\2</\1>") expr.transformString("h1: This is the title")

      will return This is the title

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed omission of LICENSE file in source tarball, also added CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md per GitHub community standards.
