I have below code :

my($abc) = "fred3hello";
$abc =~ /^[^d]{2,4}<([^>]+)>d?1$/;

if (defined($1)) {
print "$1
} else {
print "not found


What is the code doing ?? what function of the regular expression

$abc =~ /^[^d]{2,4}<([^>]+)>d?1$/;

    ^ - beginning of the string
    [^d]{2,4} - 2 to 4 characters not containing a digit
    ([^>]+) - 1 will be one or more characters until '>'
    d? - zero or one digit
    1 - match word '1' (hello)
    $ - final of the string

    What is the code doing?
    - Matches a string.
