Elected moderator on Unix & Linux. Feel free to @ping me in chat if there's anything I can help you with.

I've been using Linux since the late '90s and have gone through a variety of distributions. At one time or another, I've been a user of Mandrake, SuSe, openSuSe, Fedora, RedHat, Ubuntu, Mint, Arch and for the past few years Linux Mint Debian Edition (which is basically Debian testing but more green).

My Linux expertise, if I can grace it with such a lofty title, is mostly on manipulating text and regular expressions since that represents a large chunk of my daily work.

No need for character classes, but you do need `+` instead of `*` else it wil match `/// `
