That's the good news. The bad news is that for too long, regular expressions have been the exclusive property of only the most tech savvy. Until now. Learning Regular Expressions will teach you the regular expressions that you really need to know, starting with simple text matches and working up to more complex topics, including the use of back references, conditional evaluation, and look-ahead processing.
