I'm working on an api server and needed a way to grab parameters from the
url by their placement.

i.e., from "/api/people/uuid/"  I want the table name and the uuid.

If I received /api/?table=people&id=uuid then 4D's Web Get Variables would
work just fine.

So, I came up with this (cribbed from the 4D Docs on *Match regex*(:

*C_TEXT*($text;$match;$key)

*C_BOOLEAN*($found)

$text:="/api/people/E862F2A87B4A453087D794576B7E51B0/"

$match:="/api/(\\w+)/(\\w+)/"


*ARRAY LONGINT*($position_found_array;0)

*ARRAY LONGINT*($length_found_array;0)

$found:=*Match regex*($Match;$text;1;$position_found_array;
$length_found_array)

*If *($found)

$table_name:=*Substring*($text;$position_found_array{1};$length_found_array
{1})

*If *(*Size of array*($position_found_array)>=2)

$key:=*Substring*($text;$position_found_array{2};$length_found_array{2})

*End if *

*End if *
