How to Apply Regular Expressions on the Contents of a File?

(JAVA free example written by Anton Zamov.)


How to Apply Regular Expressions on the Contents of a File?

The matching routines in java.util.regex require that the input be a CharSequence object. This example implements a method that efficiently returns the contents of a file in a CharSequence object.
// Converts the contents of a file into a CharSequence
// suitable for use by the regex package.
public CharSequence fromFile(String filename) throws IOException {
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(filename);
FileChannel fc = fis.getChannel();

// Create a read-only CharBuffer on the file
ByteBuffer bbuf = fc.map(FileChannel.MapMode.READ_ONLY, 0, (int)fc.size());
CharBuffer cbuf = Charset.forName("8859_1").newDecoder().decode(bbuf);
return cbuf;
}

Here is sample code that uses the method:
try {
// Create matcher on file
Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("pattern");
Matcher matcher = pattern.matcher(fromFile("infile.txt"));

// Find all matches
while (matcher.find()) {
// Get the matching string
String match = matcher.group();
}
} catch (IOException e) {
}
