    Thanks to everyone who responded. The query was in fact obscure since I didn't use the <code> tag. Please find the query in a proper format below.

    I have a file called names.txt with the following content
    john[JM]mcgroddy
    stephen[SG]gomsey
    yuri[YA]alchenko

    I was trying to extract the initials placed between special characters  [ and ] and output this to a new file initials.txt as

    JM
    SG
    YA

    .

    I hope that I have clarified the question. Thanks once again to those who guided me the correct regex. Regards, PS.
