    Default Java RegEx explanation needed

    Hello, everybody. Since I came from Perl which is known for it`s monstrous powerful RegEx, I want to know how can I read regexes in Java. Let`s say:
    Java Code:
    /(-){0,1}[0-9]((\.)&[0-9]){0,1}/
    which must match any number real or whole negative or positive. I want a simple example that explains:
    matching a whole or real number either negative or positive. That`d be sufficient.
    Thanks.

    Read the API for java.util.regex.Pattern where you will find the regex constructs that are supported in Java.
