How do I capture words that are different from specific word using RegEx?
I wanted to know, how do I capture any word which is not exactly "yellow". e.g.: "red". I have tried the following regex: (?!(yellow)) Debuggex Demo ... but I have two problems: It does not capture (creates a backreference) for matching expression (e.g.: "red") "yellowwwwww" does not match my regex, even though it is different from "yellow". Can you help me correcting my regex? Thanks!
To capture any word which is NOT yellow you can use: \b((?!\byellow\b)\w+)\b Online Demo: https://www.debuggex.com/r/S-qTilRd3WJqUP6x
How about (?!yellow$) The inner parenthesis in your original regex are needed only if you want to capture the group The $ ensures that only yellow will not match. If you want to use it inside a phrase use this instead (?!yellow\b)
