      I’m sorry but I don’t know what I’m looking for. You have to be pretty specific with a regex. Are you looking for 4 digits separated by commas, or 1 digit followed by 3 double digit numbers? See it is a bit confusing.

            >>> import re
            >>> pat = re.compile(‘(\d[\s,]+(\d+)’)
            >>> s = ‘1,2,3,4,5’
            >>> g = re.match(pat,s)
