Regex for detecting two language sets

30 May 2017, 02:50

I am still doing the ABCs of regex, so perhaps this may not be a difficult question.

The clipboard constitutes text characters, including but not limited to text from one or two languages,
say Latin(0x0020 ~ 0x007F, 0x00A0 ~ 0x00FF) and/or Greek(0x0370 ~ 0x03FF) characters.
FYI, I have the unicode version of AHK installed.

In essence, this what I would like to do:
1. detect if clipboard includes both greek AND latin characters.
2. detect if clipboard includes greek but NOT latin characters (or vice versa).

Code: Select all

^+!F12::
{
    if (clipboard) ~= "[latin patterns AND greek pattern]"
    {
        tooltip % both latin AND greek detected
    }
    else if (clipboard) ~= "[greek pattern but NOT latin patterns]"
    {
        tooltip % greek but NOT latin detected
    }
    else if (clipboard) ~= "[latin patterns but NOT greek pattern]"
    {
        tooltip % latin but NOT greek detected
    }
    else
    {
        tooltip % none of the two were detected
    }
}

The object is to design each regex pattern that fits the bill.
Help would be appreciated.

 ToolTip, Both Latin AND Greek detected
else if (RegExMatch(clipboard,"[\x{0370}-\x{03FF}]")) && (!RegExMatch(clipboars,"[\x{0020}-\x{007F}]") && !RegExMatch(clipboard,"[\x{00A0}-\x{00FF}]"))
 ToolTip, Greek but NOT Latin detected
else if (RegExMatch(clipboard,"[\x{0020}-\x{007F}]") || (RegExMatch(clipboard,"[\x{00A0}-\x{00FF}]"))) && !RegExMatch(clipboard,"[\x{0370}-\x{03FF}]")
 ToolTip, Latin but NOT Greek detected
else
 ToolTip, None of the two were detected

It's impossible to lead us astray for we don't care even to choose the way.

Nicely done! Thanks to both.
And thanks for the tutorial link.

I prefer the short-hand version, but I will probably fuse the two versions for future extensibility.
Didn't know they had unicode categories! Very convenient.
