Create Groups or Layer Maxscript By Characters

I usually have scene that have prefixes of things like tg-0000- and the 0000 can go however high as they have it set up. I was wanting to either have them max grouped or separated by layers of their prefix.

So having all of tg-0000- objects in a single max group. And so forth. How feasible would this be?

Oh well I have things that go

Oh well I have things that go up to tg-0400- and vary between them. Or would that work for it. Since I hate to have to do it all by hand. So if there is a way to keep the number increase going and taking the characters of the of them to be the terrain group name till there is nothing left would be awesome.
