I will try to answer by adding some cases. r"\
lt;\d+>[/*]?" matchs:
lt; continuous with one and more digit then, > zero or one / or * Example:
lt;007>* r"\$\$|\${\w+}" matchs: 1st Alternative \$\$: $ 2nd Alternative \${\w+}: ${ [a-zA-Z0-9_] one or more times } Example: $ ${iOS_11} You might also want to check out this online regex tester, https://regex101.com Hope this helps.
