Hey Guys, can u give me an example, that shows how to get information out of a long String ? If......
the Word before the Information u want is known. Example
name: Benny age:23 ( I want the Info Age)
Out of this code
<HTML><FONT color="0000FF">Used Amplification(Hidden)</FONT></HTML>
I want the Information:Used Amplification(Hidden)
I guess the KEy is regexp again.....but i think i am wrong....sorry for these stupid questions.

If you don't want to learn the regex syntax, you can use strfind:
before = '<HTML><FONT color="0000FF">';
after = '</FONT></HTML>';
start = strfind(str, before) + length(before); %or just length(before)+1 if str always starts with before.
end = strfind(str, after) - 1;
result = str(start:end); %assumes there's only ever one match
It's of course a lot more flexible and shorter with regexes:
result = regexp(str, '<HTML><FONT color="[0-9A-F]+">(.*?)</FONT></HTML>', 'tokens', 'once'); %with added bonus it will work with any color, not just 0000FF.

Matlab regular expression engine is slightly different than C++ std::regex and other posix compliant regexes, it's not as good on some things (e.g. captures) but the basics are the same so, yes, you can use tutorial for C++ or any other language.
This one seems to cover the basics and is language agnostic.

@Guillaume — That has to be one of the best explanations of regexp I’ve read!
