MonkPaul's scratchpad

This is the sentence I have:

rn:R07491 (S)-2,3-Epoxysqualenel <=> 5-Dehydroepisterol

in which I need to find "(S)-2,3-Epoxysqualenel"

but the regular expression I have doesn't seem to match it:

BTW I hate java...
The actual java code I'm using is:

for (j = 0; j < split_compounds_2.length; j++) { //System.out.println(split_compounds_2[j] + "\n"); //regular_expression = "(\\b" + split_compounds_2[j].trim() + "\\b\\W? +)"; //(?:\W|^)\Q$term\E(?:(?=\W)|\z) regular_expression = "(?:\\W|^)\\b"+ split_compounds_2[j].trim() + "\\ +b\\W?(?:(?=\\W?))"; System.out.println(regular_expression + "\n"); new_reaction_2 = new_reaction_2.replaceAll(regular_expression , " [" + + compound_id[0] + "] "); }
