I did my first answer without the "right before the suffix" part
\d means digit
[^\d] means non-digit
[^\d\n\.] means non-digit, not linefeed and not period
Using replaceText makes the task a bit difficult but here is a solution that
--need to setup a condition where digits not followed by a period can be
located, then purge them
-- "[\d]+q" says locate runs of digits followed by a "q"
put replaceText( tolower(tFiles5),"[^\d\n\.]","q") into tFiles6
put replaceText( tFiles6,"[\d]+q", empty) into tFiles6
replace "q" with empty in tFiles6
replace "." with empty in tFiles6
filter tFiles6 without empty
or (matchChunk /or/ matchText) repeat loop to grab the positive matches for
