Do we have inbuilt telephone number parser in HPCC?

Questions around writing code and queries

Mon Nov 07, 2016 7:36 pm Change Time Zone


I'm working on parsing a telephone number in the data to format the numbers and represent them in one common standardized format for a particular country/locale.

Just curious to know if there is any inbuilt package available to parse these telephone number and convert them to standardized format?

Your help is appreciated.

Thank you.

AFAIK, there is no such standard parser included in the HPCC/ECL platform. You can use ECL's PARSE function to create one.

But if you're working within the RELX Group, then you should ask your HPCC/ECL colleagues if they've already written one that you can use.

I used to use RegexBuddy to get my regular expressions straight, now I just use HPCC's REGEXFIND directly.

There is detailed information out there on parsing telephone numbers, try this for a start.
