I have a regular expression, NI [A-Z]{2,6}TOP, which will not find the
range of characters. for example, that expression will find
NI TERRORTOP, but not NI AUTOP. If I change the second number in the
list, ie {2,3}, the expression will find NI BONTOP, but not the first
number in the range. what am I doing wrong? thanks in advance.
