Match a single character present in the list below
[1-9]
1-9 matches a single character in the range between 1 (index 49) and 9 (index 57) (case sensitive)
\d
matches a digit (equivalent to [0-9])
{0,2} matches the previous token between 0 and 2 times, as many times as possible, giving back as needed (greedy)
1st Capturing Group
(\.\d{3})*
* matches the previous token between zero and unlimited times, as many times as possible, giving back as needed (greedy)
A repeated capturing group will only capture the last iteration. Put a capturing group around the repeated group to capture all iterations or use a non-capturing group instead if you're not interested in the data
\. matches the character . with index 4610 (2E16 or 568) literally (case sensitive)
\d
matches a digit (equivalent to [0-9])
{3} matches the previous token exactly 3 times
, matches the character , with index 4410 (2C16 or 548) literally (case sensitive)
\d
matches a digit (equivalent to [0-9])
{2} matches the previous token exactly 2 times
$ asserts position at the end of a line
Global pattern flags
