in reply to Pattern matching of the type?

some assumptions first:

1) you want at least one number or digit first
2) you want the phrase "/pin"
3) you don't want the phrase "atlast"

The pattern match would be:

m- # match ^(\w|\d)+ # at least one digit or number at the start of a string /pin # followed by the string "/pin" \d{5} # followed by 5 digits -x # ignore whitespace (and comments)
This uses the prefix 'm' so that i can use different pattern match delimiters, in this case the dash. This way i don't have to escape the slash in '/pin', either in the match or in the comments :) This snippet doesn't capture correctly at all, but it should match the pattern i'm assuming you want. Maybe you can be a bit more specific?
