Are you looking to return the 9th or last field with ls? Why not use awk instead?

ls -lah |awk '/Shyne Family.jpg/  {print $NF}'

Thanks!

Here's my code:

                  Dim match As Match = Regex.Match(tempValue, "^(?:.+?\s+){8}(.+?)$")
                  dim group As object = match.Groups.Item(1)

.*?\d{2}:\d{2}\w*(.*)

Will focus on the time string as marker and store the wanted string (everything behind that) in an numbered capture  ("$1"  in a replacement expression).

I use the tool Expresso (free) for such desingnig tasks ...
