    How do I select part of a string...

    Hi all I am new here, hopefully someone can assist me with the following...

    If I have ../PACKAGES/test/run.html stored in the variable myUrl and I want to extract whatever is between ../PACKAGES/ and /run.html how would I go about it?

    I understand that in this instance I could use:

    var actualUrl = myUrl.slice(12,16);

    but the length of the string is dynamic, the only parts that stay the same are the start (../PACKAGES/) and end (/run.html).

    I am new to java-script, so please be kind...any assistance would be much appreciated.
