Suppose it's purely academic now, but you could have added something to the e...

Re: Regular Expression Exclusion

In any case with a REGEX you could use negative look ahead. (?!^mchat$)(^.*$) In trying to understand suggested RE, trawled the Net for 'look ahead'. Came across cookkbook recipe for excluding strings containing a certain substring, in this case 'invalid': ^(?!.*invalid.*).* Began to look like the ...

Re: Regular Expression Exclusion

Any particular reason you need a REGEX for this? Depending on the tool you are using there may be other more elegant ways. Using Silent Block , an excellent Moz Add-on from Japan. On the one hand there is a blacklist , which is processed first, before the whitelist . All matches are REGEX. You have...

Regular Expression Exclusion

Looked at what the Net has to offer, but no one has offered a solution which can be generalized. The problem is simple. There is a string of charcters s which would produce a 'non-match'. i.e. any string with substring s would not match this RE. Can any bright sparks produce this RE? Simple example:...
