    regexp not working

    Manweevil

      trying to strip strings out of a http request using a regexp:


      I'm querying a server as to the presence of PDF files in a directory, then parsing a list from the rawhtml, unfortunately, some of the files contain periods and commas, and the Regexp only matches a string from after the punctuation character,

       

      e.g.: "John M. Smith.pdf" gets matched as "Smith.pdf"

       


      Here's the Regexp:

       

      <cffunction name="parsePDF" access="public" returntype="string">
              <cfargument name="RAWHTML" type="string" required="yes">
              <cfset REGEXPMATCH="^[\s\S][[:punct:]]*\.pdf$">
              <cfreturn REMatchNoCase(REGEXPMATCH,RAWHTML)>
         </cffunction>

       

       

      TIA
