in reply to Need a regular expression to check the first digit

Hello chandantul,

you already received good hints. A minimal read of the manual is something to do.

Here the explanation of your regex:

perl -MYAPE::Regex::Explain -e "print YAPE::Regex::Explain->new(qr/^[5 +]+$/)->explain()" The regular expression: (?-imsx:^[5]+$) matches as follows: NODE EXPLANATION ---------------------------------------------------------------------- (?-imsx: group, but do not capture (case-sensitive) (with ^ and $ matching normally) (with . not matching \n) (matching whitespace and # normally): ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ^ the beginning of the string ---------------------------------------------------------------------- [5]+ any character of: '5' (1 or more times (matching the most amount possible)) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- $ before an optional \n, and the end of the string ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ) end of grouping ----------------------------------------------------------------------
