Regular Expression match in Javascript

Can you please let me know how I can express the following line using regular expressions in JavaScript?

http://www-internal.domain.com/support/devel/sandbox/anystring/anystring/anystring/anystring/anystring.html

The "anystring" can be anything, either a letter or a number and I don't know how many times it will repeat itself between slashes.

I want to match the part using regular expressions in JavaScript to the end of the directory where anystring.html HTML file locates.

Example:

http://www-internal.domain.com/support/devel/sandbox/tolgar/Myglnxa64_g934414_mytest/mybugs/mygecks/mychecks.html


Now I want to match: http://www-internal.domain.com/support/devel/sandbox/tolgar/Myglnxa64_g934414_mytest/mybugs/mygecks/

Again, I don't know how many sub directories there are until mychecks.html file.


Thanks,

Tolgar

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Another option:
var input = "http://www-internal.domain.com/support/devel/sandbox/tolgar/Myglnxa64_g934414_mytest/mybugs/mygecks/mychecks.html";

alert(input.match(/sandbox\/(.+?)\.html/)[1]);

Open in new window

re kaufmed's solution, I don't think we're supposed to include the filename part of the file, which I believe your pattern does.  You are excluding the filetype but not the filename.

Indeed. I read the example's output incorrectly. Good eye  = )
