Reg :regular expression

Hi,

Iam facing problem in excluding new line in reular expression…(/n)
eg: shiva.grp\nhi da so it should exclude \n .if any one knows help me

You’ll have to make the regexp multline with the /m option (i.e. /foo/
m) or it won’t match across newlines.

Thanks for your reply
this is my regular expression
my source is this

mygroup.grp
hi how r u
iam fine

str=~/^([a-zA-Z]{1}[a-zA-Z0-9]{0,}.([a-zA-Z]{1,}))\s(.*)$/m

if i put this regular expression it is not matching

I need to understand, you don’t want anything after new line?

or you want to remove \n and use your regular expression?

Exclude you don’t want it?

[^\n]

its like this

eg: shiva.grp hi how r u
eg: shiva.grp

Hi Shivan,
I tried with this regex, it worked for both the example you mentioned.

reg = /^[a-zA-Z]+.[a-zA-Z]+[a-zA-Z ]+[\s]*$/

str = two example values you specified.

str =~ reg -----> 0(output)
