regex hint

how to test a char is repeat more than 3 times? 

The regex is /(.)\1{9,}/.
Test:
#!perl
use warnings;
use strict;
my $regex = qr/(.)\1{9,}/;
print "NO" if "abcdefghijklmno" =~ $regex;
print "YES" if "------------------------" =~ $regex;
print "YES" if "========================" =~ $regex;
Here the \1 is called a backreference. It references what is captured by the dot . between the brackets(.) and then the {9,0} asks for nine or more of the same character. Thus this matches ten or more of any single character.
Although the above test script is in Perl, this is very standard regex syntax and should work in any language. In some variants you might need to use more backslashes, e.g. Emacs would make you write \(.\)\1\{9,\} here.
