Learn how to find and manipulate text quickly and easily using regular expressions. Author Kevin Skoglund covers the basic syntax of regular expressions, shows how to create flexible matching patterns, and demonstrates how the regular expression engine parses text to find matches. The course also covers referring back to previous matches with backreferences and creating complex matching patterns with lookaround assertions, and explores the most common applications of regular expressions.
I want to thank you taking Using Regular Expressions. Over the course of this training title, we've come a long way, from learning to match literal text, all the way to complex expressions that use captured groups, and lookaround assertions. Don't worry if it takes awhile for some of these techniques become routine. It does take practice. Don't forget that the trick to regular expressions is both to match what you want, and to match only what you want. I hope that during this tutorial you've also gained an understanding of how regular expressions can locate and manipulate text in powerful ways. Whether you're building a Web site, searching a database, validating user input, or mining for data from thousands of documents, regular expressions are a potent tool for returning matches quickly and accurately.
In a modern world filled with information, most of which is text, you will come to find regular expressions are indispensable.
