spacebug?

Post by kim » 16 Oct 2018, 01:38

Is this a bug or a misleading function ?

Code: Select all

{def title = 'S.W.A.T. (2017)'; title }
Correct way:
S.W.A.T. (2017)

Code: Select all

{def title = 'S.W.A.T. (2017)'; title.space(' - ') }
output:
S - W - A - T - (2017)
like with

Code: Select all

{n} - {s00e00} - {t}

Code: Select all

{def title = 'S.W.A.T. (2017)'; title.space('') }
output:
SWAT(2017)

[._ ]+ is all considered space. If you want to support special patterns like S.W.A.T. then you'd have to write your own pattern that somehow takes care of that.

Why are points and underscores considered space?
I can see how it would be useful while cleaning the file name for release search but not when the title has already been matched.

That's just what String.space() does, and it's been around for a long time, so depending on your use case, it may or may not do exactly what you want. Besides, if String.space() was just replacing space with space, then there wouldn't be much of a point to it. :lol:

Indeed, you wouldn't typically use String.space() on bindings such as n or t because the data is gonna be clean and won't require further clean up.
