regex text


Hi, sorry again, I am trying to match text using sed:
Code:
/topics/view/246126_text.html
/topics/view/5251_var.html
/topics/view/243526_aaa.html
I want to extract text, var and aaa and any variable texts from the code, but the numbers are variable.
Thanks,
Ted

Hi Ted,

If I understand correctly, you're trying to get the the foo_bar.html components in the file name, foo and bar?

Code:
echo $your_file_list | sed -r 's@.*/(.*)_(.*).html@one=\1 two=\2@'

thanks, yes, you understand it correctly. Is there a way to use \d to strictly match the number?

Assuming you get \d from Perl then you are looking for [0-9]

Code:
sh-3.1# echo "/topics/view/24555_3333_text.html" | sed -r 's@.*/?([0-9])_(.*).ht
ml@\2@'
text
I tried the above code, but the output I desired is:
3333_text
How do i fix this?
Thanks,
Ted

Maybe you could explain the regex as it does not make sense to me?

Hi.

Code:
$ echo "/topics/view/24555_3333_text.html" | sed -r 's/[^_]*_(.*).html/\1/'
3333_text
