QByteArrayMatcher

The QByteArrayMatcher class holds a sequence of bytes that can be quickly matched in a byte array. More

Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

This class is useful when you have a sequence of bytes that you want to repeatedly match against some byte arrays (perhaps in a loop), or when you want to search for the same sequence of bytes multiple times in the same byte array. Using a matcher object and indexIn() is faster than matching a plain QByteArray with indexOf() if repeated matching takes place. This class offers no benefit if you are doing one-off byte array matches.

Create the QByteArrayMatcher with the QByteArray you want to search for. Then call indexIn() on the QByteArray that you want to search.

class PySide6.QtCore.QByteArrayMatcher

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArrayMatcher(pattern)

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArrayMatcher(other)

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArrayMatcher(pattern, length)

Parameters

Constructs an empty byte array matcher that won’t match anything. Call setPattern() to give it a pattern to match.

Constructs a byte array matcher from pattern. pattern has the given length. pattern must remain in scope, but the destructor does not delete pattern.

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArrayMatcher.indexIn(ba[, from=0])
Parameters
Return type

qsizetype

Searches the byte array ba, from byte position from (default 0, i.e. from the first byte), for the byte array pattern() that was set in the constructor or in the most recent call to setPattern() . Returns the position where the pattern() matched in ba, or -1 if no match was found.

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArrayMatcher.indexIn(str, len[, from=0])
Parameters
  • str – str

  • lenqsizetype

  • fromqsizetype

Return type

qsizetype

Searches the char string str, which has length len, from byte position from (default 0, i.e. from the first byte), for the byte array pattern() that was set in the constructor or in the most recent call to setPattern() . Returns the position where the pattern() matched in str, or -1 if no match was found.

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArrayMatcher.pattern()
Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QByteArray

Returns the byte array pattern that this byte array matcher will search for.
