I am completely crap in regex and I need a little help with a task. How do I check a string for a single character repetition (in my case *) using javasctipt regex object. Specifically I need to check a string for 1 to n repetitions of * character. Notice that i need to check a string that contains only asterisks not any other character ex. not validate "tom***" or "**tom" or "*tom*" but "*" or "**" or "**n times". If the above case is true return true. Forgive my "noviceness".
