Topic: Searching for strings, not words

I'm working with a PDWordFinder to try to locate a certain string in a document. In particular, I'm looking for something of the form:

!AAA:##-#####!

where "A" represents an alphabetic character and "#" represents a digit.

The problem is that the PDWordFinder apparatus chops up the example above into "words" like

!, AAA:, ##-, #####!

I could probably figure out some hack to remember the last 3 "words" found and wait until these last 3 words plus the current word match the above form, but is there an easier way to do this with the tools in the SDK?

Thanks a bunch, JP
