I have file names in this format, "MMDDYY" in a folder.
I am trying to find all the file names when MM/YY is given.
so 09/05...I want to find all the file names in 09 in 2005.

Should I just break the file name into char[0-1], char[2-3], char[4-5]??

Or is there better way to search with RE??
Thanks for your help in advance.
