I need help with a regular expression.  The following expression identifies strings of 4 bytes or more.  However, it does not seem to work when the string has a special character like "-".  

\w{4,}

For Example;

1234                       -->   Found.
23-44                     --> Not found

How can I get this to work with special characters?
