This talk will get you up and running with regular expressions. The demos will be using the .NET framework's flavor of regular expressions. However, since the .NET regular expressions like most regular expression libraries are Perl Compatible, the syntax presented should apply to a wide range of regular expression packages.
The talk will be divided into two parts. The first part will be discussing Regular Expressions as a language and their syntax. The second will discuss the practical use of regular expressions in the .NET language using the regex library, testing, and other practical considerations.
