I'd like to use regex with Java.
What I want to do is find the first integer in a string.
String = "the 14 dogs ate 12 bones"
Would return 14.
String = "djakld;asjl14ajdka;sdj"
Would also return 14.
This is what I have so far.
Pattern intsOnly = Pattern.compile("\\d*"); Matcher makeMatch = intsOnly.matcher("dadsad14 dssaf jfdkasl;fj"); makeMatch.find(); String inputInt = makeMatch.group(); System.out.println(inputInt);
What am I doing wrong?
