Filename Extension

Regular expression to capture a POSIX filename extension.

Usage

var RE_EXTNAME_POSIX = require( '@stdlib/regexp/extname-posix' );

RE_EXTNAME_POSIX

Regular expression to capture a POSIX filename extension.

var ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( 'index.js' )[ 1 ];
// returns '.js'

Notes

  • When executed against dotfile filenames (e.g., .gitignore), the regular expression does not capture the basename as a filename extension.

    var ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( '.bash_profile' )[ 1 ];
    // returns ''
    
    ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( '.travis.yml' )[ 1 ];
    // returns '.yml'
    

Examples

var RE_EXTNAME_POSIX = require( '@stdlib/regexp/extname-posix' );

var ext;

ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( 'index.js' )[ 1 ];
// returns '.js'

ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( '/foo/bar/home.html' )[ 1 ];
// returns '.html'

ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( 'foo/file.pdf' )[ 1 ];
// returns '.pdf'

ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( 'beep.' )[ 1 ];
// returns '.'

ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( '' )[ 1 ];
// returns ''

ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( '/foo/bar/file' )[ 1 ];
// returns ''

ext = RE_EXTNAME_POSIX.exec( '/foo/bar/.gitignore' )[ 1 ];
// returns ''
