CharMatcher fields with Examples | Guava | Java
  • Last Updated : 05 Nov, 2019

CharMatcher class provides the following constants to obtain CharMatcher instance.


Below are some of them

DIGIT



CharMatcher.DIGIT determines whether a character is a digit according to Unicode. If you only care to match ASCII digits, you can use inRange(‘0’, ‘9’).
Syntax:

public static final CharMatcher DIGIT

Below is the implementation of the above field.

Program 1:




// Program for CharMatcher.DIGIT field in Java
import com.google.common.base.CharMatcher;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Input string to check for matching
        String input = "123 is divisible by 3";
  
        // Printing the input
        System.out.println(input);
  
        // Declaring a CharMatcher object
        CharMatcher matcher = CharMatcher.DIGIT;
  
        // Retaining the result after matching
        String result = matcher.retainFrom(input);
  
        // Printing the result
        System.out.println(result);
    }
}
Output:
123 is divisible by 3
1233

JAVA_LETTER

CharMatcher.JAVA_LETTER determines whether a character is a letter or digit according to Java’s definition.
Syntax:



public static final CharMatcher JAVA_LETTER

Below is the implementation of the above field.

Program 1:




// Program for CharMatcher.JAVA_LETTER field in Java
import com.google.common.base.CharMatcher;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Input string to check for matching
        String input = "123 is divisible by 3";
  
        // Printing the input
        System.out.println(input);
  
        // Declaring a CharMatcher object
        CharMatcher matcher = CharMatcher.JAVA_LETTER;
  
        // Retaining the result after matching
        String result = matcher.retainFrom(input);
  
        // Printing the result
        System.out.println(result);
    }
}
Output:
123 is divisible by 3
isdivisibleby

ASCII

CharMatcher.ASCII determines whether a character is ASCII, meaning that its code point is less than 128.
Syntax:

public static final CharMatcher ASCII

Below is the implementation of the above field.

Program 1:




// Program for CharMatcher.ASCII field in Java
import com.google.common.base.CharMatcher;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Input string to check for matching
        String input = "GeekforGeeks is fun.\u00be";
  
        // Printing the input
        System.out.println(input);
  
        // Declaring a CharMatcher object
        CharMatcher matcher = CharMatcher.ASCII;
  
        // Retaining the result after matching
        String result = matcher.retainFrom(input);
  
        // Printing the result
        System.out.println(result);
    }
}
Output:
GeekforGeeks is fun.?
GeekforGeeks is fun.

ANY

CharMatcher.ANY field matches any character i.e. it matches all the characters.
Syntax:

public static final CharMatcher ANY

Below is the implementation of the above field.

Program 1:




// Program for CharMatcher.ANY field in Java
import com.google.common.base.CharMatcher;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Input string to check for matching
        String input = "GeekforGeeks is fun.";
  
        // Declaring a CharMatcher object
        CharMatcher matcher = CharMatcher.ANY;
  
        // Retaining the result after matching
        String result = matcher.retainFrom(input);
  
        // Printing the result
        System.out.println(result);
    }
}
Output:
GeekforGeeks is fun.

JAVA_LOWER_CASE

CharMatcher.JAVA_LOWER_CASE determines whether a character is lower case according to Java’s definition.

Syntax:

public static final CharMatcher JAVA_LOWER_CASE

Below is the implementation of the above field.

Program 1:




// Program for CharMatcher.JAVA_LETTER_OR_DIGIT field in Java
import com.google.common.base.CharMatcher;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Input string to check for matching
        String input = "gEEKSfORgEEKS";
  
        // Printing the input
        System.out.println(input);
  
        // Declaring a CharMatcher object
        CharMatcher matcher = CharMatcher.JAVA_LOWER_CASE;
  
        // Retaining the result after matching
        String result = matcher.retainFrom(input);
  
        // Printing the result
        System.out.println(result);
    }
}
Output:
gEEKSfORgEEKS
gfg

Note: This class deals only with char values. It does not understand supplementary Unicode code points in the range 0x10000 to 0x10FFFF. Such logical characters are encoded into a String using surrogate pairs, and a CharMatcher treats these just as two separate characters.

JAVA_UPPER_CASE

CharMatcher.JAVA_UPPER_CASE determines whether a character is upper case according to Java’s definition.
