Regex / .cgi in URL

Regex / .cgi in URL

Regex / .cgi in URL

I was looking for a simple regex to determine if a URL contains a cgi extension (.cgi)



http://www.sitedomain.com/script.cgi?id=2332&y=44 would be "True"
sitedomain.com/someotherscript.cgi?x=23 would be "True"
http://www.sitedomain.com/somepage.htm would be "False"

Thank you

RE: Regex / .cgi in URL


You know, I am abit paranoid, so I thought to stupid situations, like :
 - dir/dir.cgi/file.htm
 - dir/file.htm?ext=.cgi
 - dir/file.cgiqwert

Of course, for normal people your solution is also good, Kevin.
