Learn regular expressions in about 55 minutes

Regular expressions ("regexes") are supercharged Find/Replace string operations. Regular expressions are used when editing text in a text editor, to:

check whether the text contains a certain patternfind those pattern matches, if there are anypull information (i.e. substrings) out of the textmake modifications to the text.

As well as text editors, almost every high-level programming language includes support for regular expressions. In this context "the text" is just a string variable, but the operations available are the same. Some programming languages (Perl, JavaScript) even provide dedicated syntax for regular expression operations.
