JavaScript | RegExp {X,} Quantifier

  • Last Updated : 23 Apr, 2019

The RegExp m{X, } Quantifier in JavaScript is used to find the match of any string that contains a sequence of m, atleast X times, where X is a number.

Syntax:

/m{X, }/ 

or

new RegExp("m{X, }")

Syntax with modifiers:

/\m{X, }/g 

or



new RegExp("m{X, }", "g")

Example 1: This example matches the presence of the character ‘e’ at least 1 times in the whole string.




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
      
<head>
    <title>
        JavaScript RegExp {X,} Quantifier
    </title>
</head>    
  
<body style="text-align:center">
      
    <h1 style="color:green">GeeksforGeeks</h1>
      
    <h2>RegExp {X,} Quantifier</h2>
      
    <p>Input String: GeeksforGeeeks e@_123_$</p>
      
    <button onclick="geek()">Click it!</button>
      
    <p id="app"></p>
      
    <script>
        function geek() {
            var str1 = "GeeksforGeeeks e@_123_$";
            var regex4 = /e{1,}/gi;
            var match4 = str1.match(regex4);
  
            document.getElementById("app").innerHTML
                    = "Found " + match4.length
                    + " matches: " + match4;
        }
    </script>
</body>
  
</html>                    

Output:
Before Clicking the button:
atleastX
After Clicking the button:
atleastX

Example 2: This example replaces the word containing atleast 2 ‘e’ with ‘$’ character.
