Dear all,
I want to find the file paths in the large string by regexp such as:
As you see, pattern search was good in . but in Matlab, Japanese string could not get as following:
>>str = ['a:\fawe\abc\AddNew_.doc '...
>>pattern = '(?:[\w]\:|\\)(\\[a-zA-Z_\-\s0-9\u3000-\u303F\u3040-\u309F\u30A0-\u30FF\uFF00-\uFFEF\u4E00-\u9FAF\u2605-\u2606\u2190-\u2195\u203B\.]+)+\.(txt|mat|pdf|doc|docx|xls|xlsx|cgt|slx|m)';
>>match_str = regexp(str, pattern, 'match')
match_str =
1×1 cell array
Do you have any idea for resolve.
Thank you so much

The \u syntax is not valid in MATLAB:
\u3000 % !!! NOT CORRECT !!!
To create a character from hexadecimal use \x:
So you will need to change all of your \u... into \x....
