You could try:
sub(".*(ron)", "\\1", 'my name is ron')
sub('^.* ([[:alnum:]]+)$', '\\1','my name is ron')

I am struggling to extract a part of string using regular expression in R.
Let say, the string to be extracted is 'ron' from the expression 'my name is ron'. So I tried following:
> gsub("[^(ron)]", "", 'my name is ron')
I was expecting to get 'ron', which is not the case.
Could someone please guide me what will be the right way for that?
Thanks for your help.
