FlashStats

Wilcard Help

The Basics
    When you run a FlashStats report, you need to specify which requests you want FlashStats to count. This is done by specifying the path of requests to include; requests that don't match the specified path will be ignored. If you want to include only certain paths then you can use certain "wildcard" characters to easily specify different request paths.

    The wildcards supported are a useful subset of "regular expressions." The most commonly used wildcards are "*" and "?".

    The wildcard characters will be interpreted as wildcards if the "Use wildcards" checkbox on the Report Request Form is checked. If the checkbox is not checked then the wildcard characters will be interpreted literally, and therefore only paths exactly matching what you specify in Path To Analyze will be included in the report.


The "*" and "?" Wildcards

The "|" Wildcard

The "[a-z]" Wildcard
    Use the "[a-z]" wildcard to specify a precise set of acceptable characters to match. Provide a list of characters to match; ASCII character ranges can be specified using the notation "a-z". ("[a-z]" is the same as "[abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz]".)

    FlashStats will attempt to match exactly one character from the set of characters specified.

    Finally, if the first character provided is ~ then the entire set of characters is treated as character not to match.

    Here are some examples of using the "[a-z]" wildcard:

    • If you specify /products/[a-k]*/info.htm in Path To Analyze:
      • /products/flashstats/info.htm will match
      • /products/maxcharge/info.htm will not match

    • If you specify /products/[abcdefg]*/info.htm in Path To Analyze:
      • /products/flashstats/info.htm will match
      • /products/maxcharge/info.htm will not match

    • If you specify /products/[a-z]*/info.htm in Path To Analyze:
      • /products/flashstats/info.htm will match
      • /products/maxcharge/info.htm will match

    • If you specify /products/[a-z]/info.htm in Path To Analyze:
      • /products/flashstats/info.htm will not match
      • /products/maxcharge/info.htm will not match

    • If you specify /products/[~a-k]*/info.htm in Path To Analyze:
      • /products/flashstats/info.htm will not match
      • /products/maxcharge/info.htm will match
