A regular expression is a sequence of characters which define a search pattern. Go language support regular expressions. A regular expression is used for parsing, filtering, validating, and extracting meaningful information from large text, like logs, the output generated from other programs, etc.
In Go regexp, you are allowed to extract a regular expression from the given string with the help of the FindString() method. This method returns a string which holds the text of the leftmost match in a given string of the regular expression. If there is no match found, then this method returns an empty string, but it will also return an empty string if the regular expression successfully matches an empty string. This method is defined under the regexp package, so for accessing this method you need to import the regexp package in your program.

Found: like3 with index value: [5 10]
