  • Unfortunately Regular Expressions are an enormous topic and it's hard to put a lot into a forum post.  The best way to learn regex's is to grab a couple of tutorials off the web and go from there.  I'd start off with the following.

    Of course if you have any questions along the way please post them here and we'll help out.
