Re: regular expression for getting text between 1. and 2.

in reply to regular expression for getting text between 1. and 2.

I see two options: Either use anchors /^1[).](.*?)2[).]$/
or use a greedy match /1[).](.*)2[).]/

btw. In the character class you don't need the pipe for an or. Your regex would also match 1| some text 2|

hope this helps
