Match Literal Strings

Tell us what’s happening:

Would you tell me why the term, /Waldo/, isn’t in quotes please.

Your code so far


let waldoIsHiding = "Somewhere Waldo is hiding in this text.";
let waldoRegex = /Waldo/; // Change this line
let result = waldoRegex.test(waldoIsHiding);

/Waldo/ is the pattern that is being searched in the string waldoIsHiding and if it is found, then it returns True else it returns False. You don’t need the pattern in quotes when you’re doing regex.

Even shorter: that is a Regular Expression, not a String
