Hello,

I want the extract everything after the second slash(/) 

OR

Everything from the last till the first slash (/)     -- Both scenario works for me

 

Example - 

generation/abcd/giveandtake-messages-to-s

generation/xyz/giveandtake-messages-speedline-s

Restricting the firs two strings to character classes

[^/]+/[^/]+/(?<message>.*)

 gives big performance boost (prevents backtracking).

If you want to capture everything after the last slash, you can do something like

.*/(?<message>[^/]*)$
