There is in regular expressions.

[0123] is a one-character regular expression matching the digit 0, 1,
2, or 3.

[3-5] is a one-character regular expression matching 3, 4, or 5.

[64512-65535] is a one-character regular expression matching
1,2,3,4,5 or 6.  (It's way more complex than it needs to be, of course. 
You've got 6 listed in there twice; five is listed 4 times and also
included in the 2-6 range, and so on.)

So your expression above is going to match paths ending with AS 1, 2,
3, 4, 5, or 6.
