Subject RE: regular expression help

Here's a code snippet that does what you'd like to do with

<propertyregex property=""
              input="Foo Bar Blah Blah"
              casesensitive="false" />

The result is:
     [echo]  Regular expression is: myPrefixFoo myPrefixFoo myPrefixFoo

Do you mean:
<propertyregexp property="testprefix"  regexp="\w*" replace="myPrefix"/>
But then all the words would be replaced by the prefix , no?
Forgive me i ama beginner in regular expressions:)

 \w* should match every word or u could use the ^ method.

I normally use something like this to match words
