# extract_non_numerics

##### Extract non-numbers from a string.

##### Usage

```
extract_non_numerics(string, decimals = FALSE,
leading_decimals = FALSE, negs = FALSE)
```nth_non_numeric(string, n, decimals = FALSE, leading_decimals = FALSE,
negs = FALSE)

first_non_numeric(string, decimals = FALSE, leading_decimals = FALSE,
negs = FALSE)

last_non_numeric(string, decimals = FALSE, leading_decimals = FALSE,
negs = FALSE)

##### Arguments

- string
A string.

- decimals
Do you want to include the possibility of decimal numbers (

`TRUE`

) or not (`FALSE`

, the default).- leading_decimals
Do you want to allow a leading decimal point to be the start of a number?

- negs
Do you want to allow negative numbers? Note that double negatives are not handled here (see the examples).

- n
The index of the number (or non-numeric) that you seek. Negative indexing is allowed i.e.

`n = 1`

(the default) will give you the first number (or non-numeric) whereas`n = -1`

will give you the last number (or non-numeric),`n = -2`

will give you the second last number and so on. The function is vectorized over this argument.
