.htaccess mod rewrite question

I currently have the following line in my .htaccess file

RewriteRule ^(.*)\.html$ mycgi?parm=$1 [T=application/x-httpd-cgi]

This strips the ".html" from the file name and passes the remainder as a parameter to my cgi.

The format of the file name is a 5 digit numeric.

Is it possible using .htaccess to just pass the 1st 4 digits as the parameter to the cgi.

eg. 12345.html calls mycgi with parm=1234

Typical you go to the trouble of composing a question and then the answer just comes to you:

For info:

RewriteRule ^(.*)[0-9]\.html$ mycgi?parm=$1 [T=application/x-httpd-cgi]

has the desired effect.

Great way to boost your post count ask a dumb question and answer it yourself ;)
