I have a regular expression

^[a-zA-Z+#-.0-9]{1,5}$

which validates that the word contains alpha-numeric characters and few special characters and length should not be more than 5 characters.

How do I make this regular expression to accept a maximum of five words matching the above regular expression.

Hi Pravesh, 

try this:

^[a-zA-Z+#\-.0-9]{1,5}(\s[a-zA-Z+#\-.0-9]{1,5}){0,4}$
