With this book, you'll become a master of Regular Expressions, even if you have never written one before!
This is an advanced book for developers and programmers that want to exploit the full power of Regular Expressions, covering every aspect and also deep diving in how to use Regular Expressions in various programming languages.
What is a Regular Expression?
By definition, a Regular Expression is a sequence of symbols and characters expressing a string or pattern to be searched for within a longer piece of text.
Regular Expression follows a syntax that must be learned to be able to exploit its pattern search capabilities fully.
Also, some languages (for example Python) have added some RegExp Extensions to make the pattern search more flexible and powerful.
Why you need this
In real-life applications programming, you often face the need to parse a text, check if a string has been written correctly, and extrapolate snippets of text from bigger chunks of data...
All these tasks can be daunting if you don't know and don't use Regular Expressions.
On the other hand, writing the perfect Regular Expression for your task can be too difficult if you don't know Regular Expressions well, and more often than not, you finish copying/pasting something that seems to match your need from websites like StackOverflow, without knowing very well what you are doing.
Not anymore. Thanks to the concepts contained in this book, you'll be able to write your own Regular Expressions ... and understand what you copy/paste from StackOverflow if you want to copy anyway ;-)
You'll be the real master of your text extractions and matches, you'll completely own your code and you will be in full control of your data.
What you will learn here
To the author’s intentions, this wants to be the final reference book about Regular Expressions.
You will learn everything about RegExps, from the basics to the most advanced features.
The book will start with the basic syntax, exploring everything with real-life examples.
Every single RegEx feature will be shown and explained, and the book will also provide texts for experiments and exercises.
But wait... there is more!
You'll also get an extra section, containing thematic books deep diving into the use of Regular Expressions in various programming languages.
At the moment, the extra section features: the Python language.
Exercises to master it all
The book is full of examples, tests and real-life problems using Regular Expressions. With complete solutions and explanations. Here's an example of a simple exercise you'll find:
