Sorry, I forgot to take it into account that you don't want the [] in
your units, either. That's still doable, but requires so-called
look-around assertions in the regular expression:


This should match any characters that are preceded by "[" and followed
by "]", but without including the brackets in the match. This requires
passing perl = TRUE to regexpr(). stringr::str_match() understands this
pattern without any additional flags.

Best regards,
