quick help with regexp?


    Jan 27 2010 | 5:56 pm
    hi, i'm trying to split up a filename into it's parts which should be a matter of seconds for someone who is familiar with perl but to me this regexp-syntax is a complete mystery... could please someone give me a hand with this?
    my files are named xx_yyyy.mov where xx is a number and yyyy the framecount. in the end i need the framecount as integer so basically i need something like "strip away .mov and then take the last 4 characters".
    04_0576.mov > 0576
    pleeeeaaaaase! :)

      Just a bit neater. Nice [combine] trick, I wouldn't have thought of using it to do that.
