You lot have been amazingly helpful and patient with all my noobish questions, but fraid i have one more. Im looking to use regular expressions to extract specific words from text within a message box.
extracting the word dog, from the sentence: [the dog is fat and lazy]
I’m afraid I don’t understand what you mean by "extracting"… do you want to remove the word, in order to obtain "the is fat and lazy"? Or to know whether your message contains the word "dog"? In both cases, zl (filter / sub) is going to be much easier than regexp. But maybe I didn’t get your question…
