I need to uncompress all the files in a directory and for this I need to find the first file in the set. I'm currently doing this using a bunch of if statements and loops. Can i do this this using regex?
Here's a list of files that i need to match:
yes.rar yes.part1.rar yes.part01.rar yes.part001.rar yes.r01 yes.r001
These should NOT be matched:
no.part2.rar no.part02.rar no.part002.rar no.part011.rar no.r002 no.r02
I found a similar regex on this thread but it seems that Python doesn't support varible length lookarounds. A single line regex would be complicated but I'll document it well and it's not a problem. It's just one of those problems you beat your heap up, over.
Thanks in advance guys.
