Course Description

Regular Expressions have a wide range of library applications, from coding, text and metadata processing to basic search and query processing.

There are various regular expression syntaxes (roughly 250 and counting), all quite similar but with minor idiosyncrasies that can can be confusing depending on what tool or what programming language you might be using for a given task.
