Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("[0-9]+"):-This method compiles the given regular expression into a pattern.[0-9] is the range to be compiled.In other words means include all the digit form range 1 to 9.

Matcher matcher = pattern.matcher(text):-Creates a matcher that will match the given input against this pattern.Here text is the input.

Print_matching_word.java

import java.util.regex.*;
import java.io.*;

public class Print_matching_word {

  public static void main(String[] argsthrows Exception {
  Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("[0-9]+");
  BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader
  (new FileReader("/home/girish/Desktop/D.txt"));
  String text;
        System.out.println("Words with digit 1 to 9 are:");
  while ((text = br.readLine()) != null) {
  Matcher matcher =pattern.matcher(text);
  while (matcher.find()) {
  int start = matcher.start(0);
  System.out.println(text.substring(start));
  }
  }
  }
}

Output of the program:-

Words with digit 1 to 9 are:
4645423
24221
224121
5245241
55241
