Why not just write the parts of the regex as named strings?
name = '[a-zA-Z0-9_.]+'
at = '@'
dot = '\.'
topDomain = 'com|org|dk'
email = name + at + name + dot + topDomain
email = '[a-zA-Z0-9_.]+@[a-zA-Z0-9_.]+\.com|org|dk'
Well my syntax is most likely wrong as I suck at regex, but the meaning
should be clear enough.
