I have a bunch of URLs that look like this:

http://mysite.com/en-US/common/fragment/countrySelector.jsp

I really just want to grab this part...  US

So there may be links like this
http://mysite.com/en-CA/common/fragment/countrySelector.jsp
http://mysite.com/en-NL/common/fragment/countrySelector.jsp
http://mysite.com/en-DE/common/fragment/countrySelector.jsp

I just want to find the CA, NL, DE

Can someone help with this?

What language are you using? This will give you what you want in $1, using JS:

/http:\/\/\w+.\w+\/\w\w-(\w\w).*/

Open in new window

HTH,
