Hi

If I do

Regex.Match("baabcabc", "^[abc]+$")

it will return true only if each one of the characters in the first string (baabcabc) is somewhere in the second string (abc)

Now this is what I would deem as Allowed Characters.

But how would I program for Regular Expressions?

Say I have a string
*@*.*
would it be done the same way?

Regex.Match("myaddress@myserver.com", "^[*@*.*]+$")

Thanks
Paul
