regexp - Is it Made Easy to Learn Anywhere?

Post by ruff » Sat, 14 Jan 2006 23:50:49


I own 6 books in tcl/tk and although some of them deal relatively
extensively on the topic, I still find myself lacking an intimate
knowledge.

All I ask is -

IS THERE ANYWHERE A REALLY GOOD SET OF MANY EXAMPLES -
OR A SUPERIOR TUTORIAL

that covers regexp ?

You will want to add the book "Mastering Regular Expressions" by Jeff
Friedl to your library. http://www.yqcomputer.com/

The O'Reilly book appears to be good, but the only thing that will
really help you is practice.

Lots of Greetings!

Have you tried "Mastering Regular expression" from O'Reilly?

I found it very useful years ago to print out the Tcl re_syntax.n manual
page, and read it very slowly, repeatedly, on one summer afternoon years
ago. It also takes practice to really become good with regular
expressions.

I find that it's useful to re-read other things many times in general.
Somehow the picture in my mind forms differently after getting more
context in later paragraphs, and revisiting my earlier context.

George

P.S. Regular expressions are not the solution to everything. Sometimes
a parser written in Tcl works better than regular expressions.
