I need a regular expression that do detect a URL that contains a file ending with certain extensions, example below:
http://54.200.175.233/boleto/NF4354.zip
http://example.org.br/ex.zip
https://example.com.br/teste.exe
What better way to prepare this regular expression that detects various formats that URL?
Thank you
Marcelo

Agree with dan_blagut - you can see an example very close to what you want at the top of page 291  (NOTE: page numbers reference the numbers printed on the page, not the PDF page count).

This should do what you want:

http://.*?\.(exe|bin|zip)

you might also need to escape your //'s (to avoid delimiter errors):

http:\/\/.*?\.(exe|bin|zip)
