([^\-]*) is not working

hi
why [^ ] is not working in $regexp in this program?
i want match any character is not "-" but this code is not working!
please help me

Try without \

([^-]*)

Reason - doesn't need to be escaped like you've shown it.

You can use a positive lookahead to get the same result.

This will remove EVERYTHING for the string except -

Use on your files with caution.

Field: TITLE
Format string: $regexp(%title%,'(?=[^-]).',)

You're right regarding the initial problem. That doesn't work.

Not sure why you want to remove all but a hyphen.

Can you give an example of what you want to achieve?
