Filename

Regular expression to split a Windows filename.

Usage

var RE_FILENAME_WINDOWS = require( '@stdlib/regexp/filename-windows' );

RE_FILENAME_WINDOWS

Regular expression to split a Windows filename.

var parts = RE_FILENAME_WINDOWS.exec( 'C:\\foo\\bar\\index.js' ).slice();
/* returns
    [
        'C:\\foo\\bar\\index.js',  // input value
        'C:',                      // device
        '\\',                      // slash
        'foo\\bar\\',              // dirname
        'index.js',                // basename
        '.js'                      // extname
    ]
*/

Notes

  • When executed against dotfile filenames (e.g., .gitignore), the regular expression does not capture the basename as a filename extension.

    var parts = RE_FILENAME_WINDOWS.exec( '.bash_profile' ).slice();
    /* returns
      [
          '.bash_profile',
          '',
          '',
          '',
          '.bash_profile',
          ''
      ]
    */
    
    parts = RE_FILENAME_WINDOWS.exec( '.travis.yml' ).slice();
    /* returns
      [
          '.travis.yml',
          '',
          '',
          '',
          '.travis.yml',
          '.yml'
      ]
