    • 1. RegEx : Expressions and Parsing Examples
    • 2. Overview  What is RegEx  Purpose of RegEx  How it Works  Advantages  Demonstration  Q&A 2
    • 3. Introduction to RegEx  RegEx is a sequence of characters for a search to match a pattern.  Arose in the 1950 by Stephen Kleene, an American Mathematician.  Regular expressions are composed of characters, metacharacters and quantifiers. 3
    • 4. Purpose of RegEx  To match the pieces of text within a larger document.  To capture the string.  RegEx is used in PERL, Java and other programming languages. 4
    • 5. How it Works  Regular Expressions: Exact Matches regular expression cks rocks. match is okay. no match 5
    • 6. How it Works  Regular Expressions: Multiple Matches regular expression a p p l e Scrapple from the apple. match 1 match 2 6
    • 7. Metacharacters of RegEx . - Matches any single character.  d - Matches a digit character.  s - Matches any whitespace character including space, tab, form-feed, etc.  w - Matches any word character including underscore.  n - Matches a newline character. ^ - The beginning of a line $ - The end of a line 7
    • 8. Metacharacters of RegEx  abc - Exactly this sequence of three letters  [abc] - Any one of the letters a, b, or c  [^abc] - Any character except one of the letters a, b, or c  [a-z] - Any one character from a through z  [a-zA-Z0-9]-Any one letter or digit. 8
    • 9. Quantifier Quantifier specify the number of string pattern should occur in matching string. * - Zero or more times. + - One or more times. ? - Zero or one time  {m,n} - Matches for atleast m times and atmost n times. 9
    • 10. Advantages  The regular expression syntax is declarative: The pattern "looks like" what you want to match.  Easily compatible with different programing languages.  Easier for non-programmers than code.  Less error prone than code.  Use in Compiler Construction. 10
