How proceed string with double quotes in for loop?

%%A is has this value:

span class="proxy_anonymous" style="font-weight:bold; font-size:10px;"

Code: Select all

SET type=%%A
SET type=!type:"=$!
FOR /F "tokens=1,2 delims=$" %%S IN ("%%A") DO (


And I want to get the name of class, which is here proxy_anonymous

I know I can do this when I have the string saved in file. But the string is result from the previous loop.

This is simpler anyway.

Code: Select all

d:\ABC>type input.txt
span class="proxy_anonymous" style="font-weight:bold; font-size:10px;"
d:\ABC>type a.bat
    @echo off
    for /f "tokens=3 delims== " %%a in (input.txt) do (
    echo %%~a
    )
    pause



d:\ABC>a
proxy_anonymous

It doesn't work for me

Code: Select all

    FOR /F "tokens=3 delims== " %%S IN (%%~A) DO (
    SET type=%%S %%T
    )


Span is not a command.

What does the ~ and why do you use = as delimiter?

You take different part than I thought. Does the ~ removes quotes with the style attribute? Still don't understand why 3rd token? It looks like it should be 2nd token. And the command will not go thorough because the string contains quotes.

Succeed!

Code: Select all

SET A=%%A
SET A=!A:"=$!
FOR /F "tokens=1,2,3 delims=$ " %%S IN ("!A!") DO (
echo %%U

Its an EQUALS symbol and a SPACE as the delimiter which makes it the THIRD TOKEN!
