PCRE string questions.

What is the string that would satisfy this expression: "^gs{3}$" ?

What is an expression that would satisfy all these strings: csafaq.exe, csafbc.exe, asdfcd.exe?

Also, To catch these files, :

I am using this regex. : ^gdnus[0,9]{1,5}.[0,9]{0,1}.\.exe$

But it is not working. What is wrong with it?

Your help is appreciated, thanks. Smilie

1. gsss
2. ^......\....$ or ^.s.f..\.exe$ or ^[ca]s[ad]f[abc][qcd]\.exe$
3  Use [0-9] instead of [0,9]
