htaccess to redirect a number of pages from one domain to another - wildcards?

Hello

I have a number of pages that start with the same words in the file name that I want to redirect to another domain.

Example:

http://www.olddomain.com/fruits-that-taste-good
http://www.olddomain.com/fruits-that-taste-bad
http://www.olddomain.com/fruits-that-taste-sweet
http://www.olddomain.com/fruits-that-taste-sour

I want to do a 301 redirect to the following
http://www.newdomain.com/fruits-that-taste-good
http://www.newomain.com/fruits-that-taste-bad
http://www.newdomain.com/fruits-that-taste-sweet
http://www.newdomain.com/fruits-that-taste-sour


Is there a way to do a rule that will take the wild card "fruits-that-taste-*" and direct all of those to the new domain -- without having to type each page

Something like this (of course I am not using the right syntax:

Redirect 301 http://www.olddomain.com/fruits-that-taste-* http://www.newdomain.com/*

Not sure if this is at all possible.  Looking at my existing htaccess file I see that it is already using RewriteRule for other items.  I read somewhere that RewriteRule is used for more elaborate directs.  So it is available if it helps with this solution.

Thanks!

Could your try this from redirecting site of  sitea to siteb on your .htaccess. file  ?

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*sitea.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://siteb.com/$1 [R=301,L]
