and then applies this regular expression. The expression must
have submatches, defined as braces, and the result of the
submatch is then displayed.
- cuts a number out of a string
- cuts the text following a number and a space from the string
SNS Name examples:
The SNS PV names have three subsections, separated by colons.
If you pass the PV name as a macro $(PV) into an edm display,
you can use "$(PV).NAME" to read the PV name via ChannelAccess.
The following regular expressions will then extract the portions:
- extracts the system/subsystem from a standard SNS name.
- extracts the device name portion of a standard SNS name.
- signal name
