Thnks davido your regex just cleaned it up. But what modifiers or assertion should i use to limit matching such that it does not match it in different lines in a text file ie only match if this pattern is specified in one line not across different lines. Pl tell?

    Replace \D? with a more explicit character class. \D will match anything that is not a numeric digit. Newlines (\n) are included in "anything that is not a numeric digit".


      Exactly what i was trying to say.. How to do tell it to \D except \n ?
