This question is vague but to extract strings, the most general way in
bash is to use =~ .  Follow this template

regex='foo(.*)bar'  # extended RE syntax, put this in a string to
avoid quoting issues
if [[ $mystr =~ $regex ]]; then
  extracted=${BASH_REMATCH[1]}  # the first group.  0 is the whole match

(not tested)
