Strings

Could someone help me convert a string with a number in it such as “26.7
feet” to just the word, “feet”?

I’ve searched documentation without luck. Thank you!

string[/\w+$/] would give you “feet”. A lot depends on how you define
the operation you want (last sequence of characters, everything after
last number, etc.).
