Definition and Usage

When the [^xyz] modifier is set the regular expression finds characters that is not the specific characters or span of characters.
The characters inside the brackets can be any characters or span of characters.


new RegExp("[^xyz]")

var str = "Is this all there is?";
var patt1 = new RegExp("[^a-h]","g");
