Parsing a text file written with qSetFieldWidth
Hello, I wrote a text file using qSetFieldWidth to format the columns (different columns have different widths). The last column was reserved for special notes, which can contain spaces. Is there a way to parse the file using QTextStream and split each line based on the fieldWidth?
The text file could look like this:
@ ID StartTime EndTime GoodExample Problem Complexity Priority Note
1 17:27:46:778 08:34:11:815 no None NA NA S
2 08:34:11:816 08:34:11:946 no None NA NA T
3 08:34:17:437 08:34:17:570 no None NA NA G
4 08:34:17:437 08:34:17:570 no None NA NA G
5 08:34:23:425 08:34:23:557 no None NA NA G
6 08:36:50:114 08:36:58:049 no None NA NA C, T, G @
Note: start of each line is the ID (1, 2, 3, etc.), but I couldn't find a good way to format it here.
I would like the string list of the sixth line that looks like this:
- C, T, G
Is there a simple(ish) way to do this? Thanks.
You could try with QString::split and a QRegularExpression like \s
Hope it helps
Thanks! That's basically what I ended up doing, I was just hoping there was something symmetric to qSetFieldWidth. Your solution is certainly effective!
