in thread Parsing a Word placed between special characters

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.

[Corion]: Yay! As I had to reset my phone again, I now also back up my SMS automatically. Highly conveniently, there is a program to back up my SMS to my IMAP server as mails ;)
[1nickt]: Corion this is an android phone? If so, are you encountering problems with recent upgrades? Lately my phone dies suddenly quite often, seemingly coredumps caused by interaction of two actions, eg phone playing a sound and user swiping simultaneously :-/
