in reply to Strange regular expression warning

From the looks of things, I believe (meaning this is untested) the reason you're getting this error is because * has a special meaning inside of a regex. It denotes the previous character as something that may occur zero or more times. Unfortunately, your's is empty -- it doesn't have anything to match. (Maybe your *. is in the wrong order?)

Try putting something in front: /^.*\.ORD_API_log$/
That would matching anything that ended in .ORD_API_log. Of course, as someone else mentioned, it'd be easier to check the end and just forget about the beginning: /\.ORD_API_log$/
Hope this helps,

[1nickt]: Until recently I had a sticker on my truck (in NJ) "Keep the immigrants. Deport Trump."
[Discipulus]: i'm just talking about what is appropriate to have here at PM, and I have no a solution but just some thougths
[1nickt]: But I removed it when I travelled to somewhere more, er ... red. Why? Because I thought how stupid I would feel ...
[karlgoethebier]: 1nickt: I fear not. Perhaps enough for Europe...
[1nickt]: ... if I involved my wife (or myself) in an altercation over a slogan.
[1nickt]: I will not convince anyone who disagrees with me, with a sticker. And I don;t need to advertise my thoughts, really.
[Discipulus]: ++1nickt but what about: "out immigrants! just redskins!"
[1nickt]: I know what I believe and whether I have integrity. My actions will speak more.
[karlgoethebier]: choroba Nothing unclever in my sig. And remember: Beeing too clever is a bad mistake ;-)
