【教程】详解Python正则表达式之: ‘|’ vertical bar 竖杠

Python re crifan 7050浏览 0评论

Python的手册中,是这么解释的:

'|'

A|B, where A and B can be arbitrary REs, creates a regular expression that will match either A or B. An arbitrary number of REs can be separated by the '|' in this way. This can be used inside groups (see below) as well. As the target string is scanned, REs separated by '|' are tried from left to right. When one pattern completely matches, that branch is accepted. This means that once A matches, B will not be tested further, even if it would produce a longer overall match. In other words, the '|' operator is never greedy. To match a literal '|', use \|, or enclose it inside a character class, as in [|].

关于竖杠,表示或者的关系,其简单的用法,暂且不多解释。

下面只针对相对复杂一些的用法中,竖杠’|’,即或者,是如何使用的。


1.使用竖杠,匹配多个可能的字符串中的其中一种

最经典的例子要数匹配文件名后缀,图片后缀了。

此处,以图片后缀为例。

【需求】

希望匹配各种图片后缀,比如jpg,jpeg,gif,png,bmp等等,其中的一种。

【代码】

经过折腾,下述代码,是可以正常匹配的:

#!/usr/bin/python
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

其中,被注释掉的代码,是各种尝试,其中对应的输出,已经标注出来了,感兴趣的,自己去试试即可。

【总结】

总的来说,还是在最外层需要一个圆括号,表示一个group,然后group内部,再用多个竖杠,区分出多个可能的字符串,然后每个字符串,也被括号括起来,表示自己本身是完整的集合,需要严格匹配的。

即,类似于

((aaa)|(bbb)|(ccc))

之类的形式,就可以匹配多种字符串中的其中一种了。

另外对应的,如果想要给组添加命名,则就是这样的形式了:

(?P<groupName>(aaa)|(bbb)|(ccc))
