Hi.

I would like some help with a pattern for a regular expression.   The string that I need to find will always have 3 or more "/" characters in the string surrounded by alphanumeric characters.   By that rule, the first or last character cannot be "/".

Between each "/" character, there would be a number of alphanumeric characters but the number of characters and their composition of those characters does vary.

There are no spaces in the string. All the characters are numbers or letters.  By example the string being sought might look like the following.

204A/abcd23/1124343/abc53/213c

 Thank you for your help.
