Performs a search on a string using the supplied Regular Expression object.

The match method syntax has these parts:

Part Description
stringObj Required. The String object or literal on which to perform the search.
rgExp Required. The regular expression to use in the search.
The match method, which behaves like the exec method, returns an array of values.

Element zero of the array contains the last matched characters. Elements 1...n contain matches to any parenthesized substrings in the regular expression. The method updates the contents of the RegExp object.
