I've been tasked with creating a set of custom parsers for one of our in house applications. At this point, I am about 85% to 90% of the way there for capturing all of our event types. Our applications/dev team has created a field where the output that i've set as a capturing group comes up in one of two ways.
The second one is simple enough as I can capture that with a simple (?:\w+)(\w+)
The first one is kicking me in the rear. Obviously it fails the regex used for the second pattern, but if I write out the pattern explicitly enough to capture the first patter of the zeroes and dashes, I then not get the second pattern. What i'm looking for is a set of expression that is truly accepting of random variable, regardless of their content. I've tried left to right boundaries and anchors, but I am getting no where.
Let me also mention that I am an extreme newbie in RegEx and essentially had to teach myself the basics in a day. So any help here I could get would be MAJORLY appreciated!
