fun toList(): List<String>

Returns destructured group values as a list of strings. First value in the returned list corresponds to the value of the first group, and so on.

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
val inputString = "John 9731879"
val match = Regex("(\\w+) (\\d+)").find(inputString)!!
val (name, phone) = match.destructured

println(name) // John     // value of the first group matched by \w+
println(phone) // 9731879 // value of the second group matched by \d+

// group with the zero index is the whole substring matched by the regular expression
println(match.groupValues) // [John 9731879, John, 9731879]

val numberedGroupValues = match.destructured.toList()
// destructured group values only contain values of the groups, excluding the zeroth group.
println(numberedGroupValues) // [John, 9731879]
