Re: pattern matching possible?
Sorry for the top post - thank Groupwise :( I can't get 'translate' to work - this code (and many other similar versions): -------------------------------- Dim a a = "applications/application/acronym[translate(.,'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ','abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz')='" & LCase(sNodeText) & "']" oDupNodes = Session("Applications").selectNodes(a) ------------------------------- produces this ASP error: Unknown method. applications/application/acronym[-->translate(.<--,'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ','abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz')='asap'] Any ideas? Notice that it doesn't seem to like the 'translate' function. TIA. Hardy Merrill >>> davidc@xxxxxxxxx 05/12/04 12:47PM >>> I'm wondering if there's a way using XPath and some pattern to find case *insensitive* matches for a particular app_name?? I think this is in the FAQ list. If you don't mind a certain anglo-saxon bias then this isn't so bad app_name[translate(.,'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ','abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz')='abc'] If you need to handle accented letters, the lists get longer; if you need to handle a German sharp S uppercasing to the two characters SS then you have to work a lot harder.
