I'm no regex guru, but shouldn't you escape that - with a \ ?? iirc - is a
special char in regexps.

Subject: [thelist] REGEX problem


I want to include the minus symbol as a required character in a REGEX
expression, but am stumped as to how to do it..any suggestions?

So far I have come up with: ereg("C-[A-Z]{4}|CF-[A-Z]{3}",$data) but it
doesn't work. I know I have to change the way I have displayed the minus
symbol, but I don't know what.

I want to allow items like:
