Summary

In this chapter, we learned about regular expressions. We learned the regular expression construct using literals and metacharacters. Then, we learned the usage of various different regular expression metacharacters, which are also known as regular expression operators. Finally, we covered some GAWK-specific regular expression metacharacter usage and understood escape sequences and their role in regular expressions.

In the next chapter, we will learn about handling AWK variables and constants while writing AWK programs.
