    Glad to help. The only bummer is that you cna't have variable width lookbacks (positive or negative) like (?<=x*) or (?<!x*) You can have variable width look forward assertions though (?=x*) or (?!x*) ar OK.....




      Hi Tachyon ,

      The variable width lookup stuff , I realise that after your code and the limitations too, THANKS A BUNCH man
