Some Example of Basic Perl Regular Expressions
In this and the following pages we will provide examples of Perl regular expressions (regexp).
It is worth stating that much of what we show here is applicable to PHP, Python, Ruby and many
other languages. However, beware languages/ utilities such as AWK, grep, egrep take a
different, more efficient, but less flexible approach, to regular expression matching.
We will discuss these differences in future pages.
