Thread: Regex Question

    Default Regex Question

    I can search for a word in a string with regex as follows:

    PHP Code:
            Pattern p Pattern.compile(regex);
    Matcher m p.matcher(toCheck);
    flag m.find(); 
    where regex is a string representing the word, and toCheck is the string to check. However, how can I check a string for separated chars? I want to check if a string contains square brackets and curly braces although there will be text between these chars. I know how to do this with indexOf method, but is there a way I can use regex to check for multiple chars in one statement? I was thinking something like "/[+/]+/{+/}" but not having any luck getting it to work
