RE: Obtaining a value from within a string using CL



fixed

Thanks for your reply Michael.
Jeff Nyco also explained the same process.
Maybe my Moron gene is the prevalent one today, this week, this month, this year, this decade etc. etc. etc.

I'm sorry Alan. Put the data in a variable, then use %sst (substring) to scan through the variable, character by character. Find the slash, add 1 to the counter. You now have your start. Keep scanning until you find the next slash. That's the end. Then use %sst to extract the stuff in the middle.

I'm sorry, but I am not following.
The start points and length of each example can be different.
How do I obtain the start point and length is the question

You could use %SST and a counter if it's always going to be like that,

Hi everyone
And before I forget (as I normally do) we are on V5r4.
Within CL, is there a way to obtain a string from the following examples.

1. /weborders/PP91055370.txt
From the above, I am looking for the value PP91055370

2. /ifsdir/PP91055370,tx
From the above, I am looking for the value PP91055370

3. /ifsdir2/PP9.txt

From the above I am looking for PP9

In other words, the values between (but NOT including) the second '/' and '.txt'
As always, any and all responses are MUCH appreciated.
