A range of numbers is a set of numbers that falls within a certain range or span. It is defined by the minimum and maximum values of the set. For example, the range of the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, ... 10 is 1 to 10. The minimum value in this range is 1, and the maximum value is 10. In this article let's understand how we can create a regex for month and how regex can be matched for a given month name.
Regex (short for regular expression) is a powerful tool used for searching and manipulating text. It is composed of a sequence of characters that define a search pattern. Regex can be used to find patterns in large amounts of text, validate user input, and manipulate strings. It is widely used in programming languages, text editors, and command line tools.

Regex for checking if value is in range from 1 to 10
Regular Expression for month name-
Test string examples for the above regex-
|Input String||Match Output|
|12||does not match|
|0||does not match|
Here is a detailed explanation of the above regex-
/^([1-9]|10)$/gm ^ asserts position at start of a line 1st Capturing Group ([1-9]|10) 1st Alternative [1-9] Match a single character present in the list below [1-9] 1-9 matches a single character in the range between 1 (index 49) and 9 (index 57) (case sensitive) 2nd Alternative 10 10 matches the characters 10 literally (case sensitive) $ asserts position at the end of a line Global pattern flags g modifier: global. All matches (don't return after first match) m modifier: multi line. Causes ^ and $ to match the begin/end of each line (not only begin/end of string)
Hope this article was useful to check if the value is in range from 1 to 10 using regex.
