Tutorial :regular expression: extract last 2 characters



Question:

what is the best way to extract last 2 characters of a string using regular expression.

For example, I want to extract state code from the following

"A_IL"

I want to extract IL as string..

please provide me C# code on how to get it..

string fullexpression = "A_IL";  string StateCode = some regular expression code....  

thanks


Solution:1

Use the regex:

 ..$  

This will return provide the two characters next to the end anchor.

Since you're using C#, this would be simpler and probably faster:

string fullexpression = "A_IL";  string StateCode = fullexpression.Substring(fullexpression.Length - 2);  


Solution:2

Use /(..)$/, then pull group 1 (.groups(1), $1, \1, etc.).
