I am having trouble crafting a regex. For example, in the string
A123 4HEL5P6 789 I want to match all the numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 but not 1, 2, 3.
I have tried using negative look behind with the regex
(?<!^\w)\d+ but this matches the numbers in the first word.
Edit: Any numbers in the first continuous sequence of characters should not be matched, the first continuous sequence being from start (
^) to a whitespace (
09B8A HE1LP only 1 should be matched, not 0, 9, or 8, as these digits are in the first word.
If your dialect supports variable-length negative lookbehinds, then this should work:
r = /(?<!^\w*)\d/g console.log(...'A123 4HEL5P6 789'.match(r))
Otherwise, you could use
/^\w*|\d/g and discard the first match.
