An Introduction to Regular Expressions

Book Description

The ubiquity of regular expressions must mean they offer universal utility, and, surprisingly, they do not have a steep learning curve. If you frequently find yourself manually scanning documents or parsing substrings just to identify text patterns, you might want to give them a look. Especially in data science and data engineering, they can assist in a wide spectrum of tasks, from wrangling data to qualifying and categorizing it. This report covers enough regular expression features to make them useful for a great majority of tasks you may encounter.
