in thread extracting words with certain characters

Note: this will match "words" containing anything that is not whitespace. This may or may not be what you want. For example, should this be two different words?

word_1,word_2

If so, you could use a regex that matches a more traditional definition of a word:

/(\w*_\w*)/g

\w matches "word characters": alphanumeric characters plus underscores.
