Hi David

Try something like: "\@(.*?)\."

The question mark should tell it to get the smallest possible match. By
default regexes are greedy (at least that's my understanfind)

Attn all regular expression gurus!

I need a regular expression that will match any text between an @ and
the next period ".".

Example text: Don't ask david@xxxxxxxxxxxxx He's lousy at regex.

Currently I'm using "\@(.*)\.", but that's matching "@midrange.com."

I want to a regex that will match "@midrange."

This is for a filter I'm trying to implement on the list archives to
hide email addresses.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

david
