regular expressions

Hi,

How to check one or more letter strings follow by two or more digit numbers.
If I have $line contains data:

new YOR CiTy 55
boston 66


I have the code below but it only checks from 1 to 3 letter strings but I want to check more than 3 letter strings. How can I do it?

$line !~ /^s*([a-zA-Z]+)s*([a-zA-Z]+)s*([a-zA-Z]+)s*d{2,}$/)

Many thanks,
Tony

    I'm not sure what you're doing with your regex. If I'm not mistaken it can be much more simple:
    [code]
    /^([a-z]i)+.*(([0-9]){2})$/
    [/code]

    The "i" means "case-insensitive"

    It is working. Many thanks
