Validate US Telephone Numbers - Did I Cheat?

Validate US Telephone Numbers - Did I Cheat?

#1

While looking for more info on RegExp, I came across this Site. It really helped me to understand how RegExp is constructed. I placed all the values requiring validation on the page and then I was able to build a general string, in real time. This left me with 3 exceptions for which I constructed individual strings.

So, rather than taking 3 days ( which I normally take), I completed this challenge in less than 3 hours.

I hope I did not cheat. If I did, I do not feel too bad because I learnt a lot about RegExp.

Cheers & happy coding

@gabby4hi. I feel much better. Thinking back, I did not cheat. It was quite educational to see the result as I built the pattern.
