Extract a substring


Hi All,
I am a newbie and not sure if this is the right fourm to ask.
II just have an string "builder_test_string1ABC001_test" and I would like to extract ABC001 from this. Please note that 001 is dynamic and it can change to any numerical value. I wanted to do this in a shell script.


Thanks for ur help in advance

Please don't post the same topic in multiple forums. It makes the ensuing discussion hard to follow, and confuses the hell out of me. It's also against the rules of the forum.

Other one is here.
