( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi all, I'm trying to extract some information from a .dat file. The format of the information I'm trying to extract is this.

DR Pfam; PF00070; Pyr_redox; 2.

What I want is the PF00070 inside.

I tried several regex like (/(?<=DR\s\s\sPfam;\s\w\w\d\d\d\d\d)(.*)$/)

(/(?<=DR\s\s\sPfam\s)\w\w\d\d\d\d\d(?=\b)/)

(/(?<=DR\s\s\sPfam\;/s)\w\w\d\d\d\d\d(?=\b)/)

But none of them seem to work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    [stevieb]: it's Quebec... they do weird stuff there :) In the mountains, it is *mandatory* for trucks to use tire chains. Many passenger vehicles do as well (but it's not mandatory for them)
    [perldigious]: That stuff can hit fast... like what we just got where I'm at. Saw a few people who had slid OUT of the roundabout I have to drive through to get to work, not used to the ice yet, take awhile to get the hang of it again and make vehicle adjustments.
    [stevieb]: man, when the roads are glare ice, I don't even bother going to work or out... unless I absolutely have to, or was already out in the first place
    [choroba]: Tire chains are mandatory here in mountains, and the only unprepared each year are gritters
    [stevieb]: I have a 3 day winter survival kit in my vehicle in the event I get snowed in in the mountains (which has happened before due to avalanches closing the roads (and once in the summer due to a massive forest fire that trapped us
    [perldigious]: a handful of people in my work area did not make it, but I live pretty close and it's flat the whole way, so I didn't have any trouble. The roundabout is the worst thing I have to negotiate.
    [thezip]: G'day all!
    [perldigious]: Well, that and dodging the people who forget how ice works right away. :-)
    [stevieb]: hey, thezip
    [perldigious]: I don't miss having to drive up and down in elevation on roads that are iced over, I white knuckled gripping the steering wheel every time I had to where I used to live.
