pub fn take_while<F, Input, Error>(cond: F) -> impl Fn(Input)
where Error: ParseError<Input>, Input: InputTakeAtPosition, F: Fn(<Input as InputTakeAtPosition>::Item) -> bool,
Available on crate feature mtls only.
Expand description

Returns the longest input slice (if any) that matches the predicate.

The parser will return the longest slice that matches the given predicate (a function that takes the input and returns a bool).

§Example

use nom::bytes::complete::take_while;
use nom::character::is_alphabetic;

fn alpha(s: &[u8]) -> IResult<&[u8], &[u8]> {
  take_while(is_alphabetic)(s)
}

assert_eq!(alpha(b"latin123"), Ok((&b"123"[..], &b"latin"[..])));
assert_eq!(alpha(b"12345"), Ok((&b"12345"[..], &b""[..])));
assert_eq!(alpha(b"latin"), Ok((&b""[..], &b"latin"[..])));
assert_eq!(alpha(b""), Ok((&b""[..], &b""[..])));
