tse is an input stream editor in Python.

Project description

tse processes text input stream with Python expressions. Like AWK, tse command line option is a series of pair of condition and action:


For example, to find lines starts with ‘abc’

tse -a "^abc" "print L"

to find line contains URL

tse -a "http://\\S+" "print S0"  -a "mailto://\\S+" "print S0"

to convert upper case

tse -a ".*" "print L.upper()"
usage: [-h] [--action ACTION ACTION] [--begin BEGIN]
                      [--end END] [--input-encoding INPUT_ENCODING]
                      [--output-encoding OUTPUT_ENCODING] [--module MODULE]
                      [--module-star MODULE_STAR]
                      [files [files ...]]

Input Stream Editor in Python

positional arguments:
  files                 file names to be read. if files are omitted, stdin
                        would be used.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
                        pair of condition and action.
  --begin BEGIN, -b BEGIN
                        action invoked before input files have been read.
  --end END, -e END     action invoked after input files have been exhausted.
  --input-encoding INPUT_ENCODING, -ie INPUT_ENCODING
                        encoding of input stream.
  --output-encoding OUTPUT_ENCODING, -oe OUTPUT_ENCODING
                        encoding of output stream.
  --module MODULE, -m MODULE
                        module to be imported.
  --module-star MODULE_STAR, -ms MODULE_STAR
                        module to be imported in form of "from modname import *".


Following variables can be used within action statement.

sys, os, path, re:
 These modules are imported by default.
FILENAME:The name of file currently reading.
LINENO:Line numberof the current line.
L:Current line.
S:Part of Text matched to condition regex.
S0, S1, …:sub-string matched to condition regex. S0 is entire matched part, S1, S2 are sub group of condition regex.
(name):If condition regex has group names defined by ‘(?P<name>)’, sub-string could be referenced by variable ‘name’.
M:Match object


Print sum of numeric characters in an each line of input stream:

tse -a "\d+" "print(sum(int(s) for s in re.findall(r"\d+", L)))" \
     -a "=" "print('done'); sys.exit(0)"

Sum all numeric characters in all lines:

tse -b "all=0" \
     -a "\d+" "all+=sum(int(s) for s in re.findall(r"\d+", L)))" \
     -e "=" "print(all); sys.exit(0)"

Find all extention parts in current directory:

find . | tse -a ".*" "print path.splitext(L)[1]"
