I am new to Regexes. Now I need to write one to suit my needs. I have this string:
1 [00:00:12.00 – 00:01:20.00] Hello there – I’ve come to help you.
I would somehow need to bring it to this form:
const extracted = [ "1", "[00:00:12.00 - 00:01:20.00]", "Hello there - I've come to help you." ]
I have tried with this approach:
const testSubject = "1 [00:00:12.00 - 00:01:20.00] Hello there - I've come to help you." let result = testSubject.match(/$[^$]++$/)
But I am getting this error:
Invalid regular expression: /$[^$]++$/: Nothing to repeat
I have used this place to get the pattern: http://regex.inginf.units.it/
As already pointed out by anubhava, possessive quantifiers
There is no
$ in the string, but if you want to use a negated character class not matching the brackets, you might use a negated character class with a capture group and use split.
const pattern = /s*([[^]+])s*/; const s = "1 [00:00:12.00 - 00:01:20.00] Hello there - I've come to help you."; console.log(s.split(pattern))
