The task is to match a character that changes in every iteration of the loop using the following regular expression.
let regexp = new RegExp("" + [^char] + "");
The problem is, when I run the code, I get the following error:
SyntaxError: Unexpected token ^.
How to fix this?
this is an array,
^ is not an allowed character in an array or variable name. Remember that you are creating a string, that string will become the regular expression because of the
how do you create a string in which you need to add a variable?
let regexp = new RegExp(’’+ [’^char’] + ‘’);
var s = “char”;
Tried the above and it works.
char is a variable, as far as I understand
char is a variable. So, how do I make it work then?
do you know how to concatenate a variable to a string? (like Word Blanks challenge)
knowing that whatever need to stay the same is the string(s) and
char is the variable
Ok, this worked:
let regexp = new RegExp("[^" + [char] + "]");
you don’t need to create this array - there is any sense in putting your variable in an array you don’t use?
you can just do
+ char +
Yea, I changed that. Thanks for the explanation.
