question regarding "split" like regex group


Regular Expression
PCRE (PHP <7.3)



dear all, i am a regex beginner, so please be gentle :)

we have lines of log contents delimited by a pipe char. is it possible to fetch the content between the 5th and the 6th delimiter, ignoring the values in between?

example log line: 2014-05-21_06:50:59||-|-|-|GET|/home.html|-|6

I'd like to do something like result = line.split('|')[6]. unfortunatelly I can't write code but only a regex selector.

help is highly appreciated.
