            Regex: why is numeric capturing after negative lookahead not working?
            Asked 2022-Mar-15 at 02:09


            I think this should match any character [c], followed by any character that is not [c], then followed by [c] again.

            like 'aba', 'xyx'

            But online regexr validator is telling me im wrong. Where is the issue?

            Thanks in advance.

            You were correctly checking if the second character isn't the same as the first (group), but you forgot to allow a match on the second character otherwise.



            If you want to also want the matches to be 3 characters only,





            How do I "not" select first character in a regex pattern?
            Asked 2021-Dec-25 at 10:38

            I am a RegEx beginner and trying to identify the endings of different statements in sms. See screenshot below.

            How can I avoid selecting the next letter following by a full-stop that indicates ending of a statement.

            Note that some statements have <.> while some have <.>

            Regex used: r"\. ?[\D]"

            Sample SMS: - I want to select just the full-stop and space if any.



            Answered 2021-Dec-25 at 05:17

            What you're looking for is a look-ahead group. Whether you make that a positive look-ahead and use the negated character set \D or a negative look-ahead with the character set \d doesn't really matter- I'll outline both below:



            Match "After" if it doesn't have an an -ing word after it
            Asked 2021-Oct-23 at 07:37

            I want to match After if there isn't an -ing word after it (and before a comma). So there shouldn't be an -ing word between After and the comma.

            Desired match (bold):

            After sitting down, he began to talk.

            After finally sitting down, he began to talk.

            After he sat down, he began to talk.

            I thought this regex would do it:

            Matches only sentence from After and a comma, where there's no word with -ing after the wo

            Just a lazy quantifier to the .+ (which instead of \w+in your regex) does the trick

            \bAfter (?!.+?ing).*?,

            (And also a lazy quantifier after the second .*, just in case if there's 2 commas in the same sentence)

            Match a line with a [ character, but don't match if it has a ] character
            Asked 2021-Oct-20 at 09:09

            I thought this regex would match lines with a [, but not if it has a ]:



            Answered 2021-Oct-19 at 15:24

            This pattern ^.*\[.*(?!\]).*$ matches [ and the directly following .* will match the rest of the line.

            Then at the end of the line it will assert not ] directly to the right, which is true because it already is at the end of the line. Then the .* is optional and it can assert the end of the string.

            So it will match any whole line that has at least a single [

            If you want to match pairs of opening till closing square brackets [...] and not allow any brackets inside it, or single brackets outside of it and matching at least a single pair, you can repeat 1 or more times matching pairs surrounded by optional chars other than square brackets.

            Regex: Match multiple timestamps in a string
            Asked 2021-Oct-15 at 06:29

            I have a text file that line by line details a timestamp at the very start, and may contain other timestamps in between. The first timestamp is always enclosed in [], and the ones in the middle of the line are always enclosed in <>. The goal is to create a regex pattern that can create groups for the timestamp and the text that follows it. I'm pretty new to regex, and I'm having a hard time with it. The text would look like this:



            Answered 2021-Oct-15 at 06:29

            Going with pure regexp splitting I'd use the following. The regexp matches < or [ followed by your number pattern, then > or ] for the timestamp. For the content it takes everything until the first < and [ occurres.

            RegEx: Get multiline LDAP entry
            Asked 2021-Sep-29 at 14:55

            I'm trying to capture an entire LDAP entry from dn:.+ to the entry's last line, but stopping at last line before next entry, e.g., \n#entry-id: 8266. My trial and error using egrep is getting absolutely nowhere. NOTE: I'm using exported ldif files where the data resides, fwiw.

            Closest I've come is with egrep "dn: cn=name,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com.+.|\n*.+\n" but no output on terminal. I've tested the actual regex on I understand that is a completey different env.

            egrep uses extended regexp (equivalent to grep -E). Prefer grep -P (perl regexp) instead.
            The -z flag makes your regex multiline:
