special letters

Code:
dkp = {
["Fr\195\170em\195\162n"] = 56.00
}
How can i get This value


dkp.playername doenst work with special letters, can i first convert the playername string to this \170\162 Stuff? to get the right array key?

something like...

Code:
s = Frêemân
local function convert(s)


 return s -- like Fr\195\170em\195\162n
end

dkp.blabla is the same as dkp["blabla"].

For a string value, use (e.g.)

local s = "blabla"
local val = dkp[s]

If we're talking about an in-game addon (.lua) then making sure you save your file as utf8 should suffice for saving and looking up keys without escaping characters.

That is save as [blâblâ] and look it up the same way.

If you have a web interface parsing saved variables, or you need to copy paste from in-game to a web site or some other interaction of the kind, provide more information about what exactly you're trying to accomplish and in what environment

Yeah the question here is why your string contains utf8 format instead of plain text. As Driz asked, are you using an external dkp extracting addon or something?

Saving as...
Code:
dkp = {
["Frêemân"] = 56.00
}
and then grabbing the data by..
Code:
dkp["Frêemân"]
If it's a must to where you have to use utf8 then you would want to create a table with all the special characters in it with their utf format and then making a replace/convert function to use that table.

yepp the data format ist only like

["B\195\162be"] or
["Dw\195\161yna"] = {
["DKP"] = 100.00
}

the data comes from http://absence-gilde.com/eqdkp/getdkp.php eqdkp
the old addon "GetDKP" doesnt work, so i codet my own little "whisper to get dkp" addon.

it works fine, (with my very bad code *g*) but the utf8 problem let it only work for normal character names.

Code:
SLASH_DKP1 = "/dkp"
SlashCmdList["DKP"] = function(msg, editBox)
    -- change the text on the editBox.
    print("Du hast "..gdkp.players.Ikuria.DKP.. "DKP")
end

local function filter(self, event, msg, sender)
	split = string.match(msg, " (%w+)")
	if (split) then
	firstchar = split:sub(1,1)
	firstchar = firstchar:upper()
	split = split:sub(2)
	split = firstchar .. split
	end
	if (self:GetName() == "ChatFrame1") then
		if (gdkp.players[split]) then
			SendChatMessage(split.." hat "..gdkp.players[split].DKP.. " DKP aus ".. gdkp.players[split].rcount .. " gespielten Raids.", "WHISPER", nil, sender)
			return true
		else
			if (msg == "!dkp" or msg == "?dkp") then
				if (gdkp.players[sender]) then
					SendChatMessage("Du hast "..gdkp.players[sender].DKP.. " DKP aus ".. gdkp.players[sender].rcount .. " gespielten Raids.", "WHISPER", nil, sender)
					return true
				else 
					SendChatMessage("Der Spieler "..sender.. " wurde nicht gefunden.", "WHISPER", nil, sender)
					return true
				end
			end
		end
	end
	if (self:GetName() == "ChatFrame5") then
		if (gdkp.players[split] or msg == "!dkp" or msg == "?dkp") then
			return true
		end
	end
end


local function HideOutgoing(self, event, msg, author, ...)
	if (self:GetName() == "ChatFrame5") then
		if (msg == string.match(msg, "Du hast %d+ DKP aus %d+ gespielten Raids.")) then 
			UIErrorsFrame:AddMessage(author.." fragte seine DKP ab.", 1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 53, 5);
			return true	
		end
		if (msg == string.match(msg, "%w+ hat %d+ DKP aus %d+ gespielten Raids.")) then
			split = string.match(msg, "(%w+)")
			firstchar = split:sub(1,1)
			firstchar = firstchar:upper()
			split = split:sub(2)
			split = firstchar .. split
			UIErrorsFrame:AddMessage(author.." fragte "..split.."'s DKP ab.", 1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 53, 5);
			return true
		end
		if (msg == string.match(msg, "Der Spieler %w+ wurde nicht gefunden.")) then
			return true
		end
	else
		return true
	end
end

ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter("CHAT_MSG_WHISPER_INFORM", HideOutgoing)
ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter("CHAT_MSG_WHISPER", filter)

Lua Code:
  1. local function convert(s)
  2.     return (gsub(s, '.', function(c) local o = string.byte(c) return o > 127 and '\\' .. o or c end))
  3. end

someone helped me in private message, for those who search for the same answer

i used the wrong regex
%w finds only normal letters

string.match(msg, "(.+)")

finds the rest

All strings WoW passes into the Lua environment are encoded in UTF-8. Since UTF-8 was created to be backwards compatible with ANSI, any codes within the ANSI character set will be exactly the same in UTF-8. Also, there's no reason to need a conversion function to store these in Lua. Lua supports full binary in its strings, even embedded zeroes.

The result of (.+) returns the entire contents of the string msg as it matches all characters. I would recommend using the non-space identifier (%S+) instead. Note these identifiers are case sensitive in which using the opposite case returns an inverse match. For example, since the lowercase %s returns any whitespace character, the uppercase %S would return any non-whitespace character.

  54. ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter("CHAT_MSG_WHISPER", filter)

works, but the code is little messie ^^ just because of the "ChatFrame5" thing, i didnt know how to prevent the double posts because of same whispers in more tabs

sry for my problems here, i'm just learning lua at the moment ^^

I would actually recommend moving your whisper reply code into its own frame and handler. The problem with putting it in with the rest of your filter functions is those functions run for every ChatFrame that has the whisper event registered.

Another problem is if no ChatFrames are registered with the whisper event, the filter functions will never run.
