How to put a string

How to put a string

How to put a string


I have extracted a line from a file,Now I want to put particular string from that .How to do that.Please help.

For example:
I have extracted a line
CDC Status: CDC-P1 not complete
using command
if { [ regexp "^# CDC Status:" $line ] } {
regsub -all {(\s+)} $line { } temp_sta

Now I want to set a variable to CDC-P1 not complete .

How to extract that.


RE: How to put a string


  • Your sample string contains no "#", so why regexp's expression includes it ?
  • Your regsub replaces one or more consecutive whitespace characters with one space. Why ?
Anyway, there is no need for the regsub call, the regexp alone can solve it :

CODE --> Tcl

set line "CDC Status: CDC-P1 not complete"

regexp "^CDC Status: *(.*)" $line {} temp_sta

puts $temp_sta
