Re: [vox-tech] regex to detect a range of numbers



Well, i thought i had solved that problem by limiting the number of
characters entered to 4, which prevents 17999, but without your
suggestion, they can type 501a, or 501[whatever], and it passes
(obviously).  However, I pasted what you gave me right in and it didn't
work when testing (everything tested seemed to pass).

I came up with this as a possible solution:

/^(50[1-9]|5[1-9][0-9]|[6-9][0-9]{2}|[1][0-7][0-9]{2})$/

I also thought of allowing a comma:

/^(50[1-9]|5[1-9][0-9]|[6-9][0-9]{2}|[1],?[0-7][0-9]{2})$/

Those both seem to be working.  See any problems?
