Sounds like a case for using regular expressions. Since that's a finite group of characters, you can enumerate them all.

Or do you mean something like "everything but a-z, A-Z and 0-9"? That would be easier to accomplish using regexp groups and classes - check the javadocs of the java.util.regex.Pattern class.

Regular expressions is probably one area where "learning by example" is not possible. You can't really learn regular expressions this way.

I would recommend starting with a tutorial on regular expressions.
