What exactly do you want from the regex?

Do you want to split the string into 3 variables?

i.e. string = 2006%2F10%2Fasdfasdf
     year = 2006
     day = 10
     text = asdfasdf

Or are you wanting to find a regex that would match everything but the
%2F?

Hi!

I have a string in the following form: 2006%2F10%2Fasdfasdf (or more
generic: any_characters+%2Fany_characters+%2Frest_of_it). I am wondering
if I can retrieve the groups 2006, 10, asdfasdf thru a regex (I confess
I couldn't figure it out so far :-( ).

many thanks,

./alex
