Regular expressions are extremely useful in extracting information from text such as code, log files, spreadsheets, or even documents. And while there is a lot of theory behind formal languages, the following lessons and examples will explore the more practical uses of regular expressions so that you can use them as quickly as possible.
The first thing to recognize when using regular expressions is that everything is essentially a character, and we are writing patterns to match a specific sequence of characters (also knownas a string). Most patterns use normal ASCII, which includes letters, digits, punctuation and other symbols on your keyboard like %#$@!, but unicode characters can also be used to match any type ofinternational text.
Regular expressions are available in ABAP as of Release 7.0. A regular expression is a pattern of literal and special characters that describes a set of character strings. You use regular expressions to locate or replace one or more occurrences of the character strings represented by the expression in character strings. ABAP supports regular expressions in the statements FIND and REPLACE and via the the classes CL_ABAP_REGEX and CL_ABAP_MATCHER. In an upcoming Release there will be also built-in functions that support regular expressions.
Regular expressions are very powerful but can also become very complicated and are not easy to maintain. Especially finding an appropriate expression for a given task might take some time and then the question remains, how to test it. If you do not want to test your regular expressions only after including them in your application programs and if you do not want to create temporary test programs for each regular expression over and over again, you can use the program DEMO_REGEX_TOY that is delivered as of Support Package 7 of Release 7.0.
I confess that whenever I need to use regular expressions, be it to build something or give maintenance, I shudder.Maybe this happens because I understand little the running of regular expressions.Maybe it's because I've already see really big and complex expressions.
You will hardly spend your life on programming without using regular expressions, and therefore a simpler solution for writing them is necessary.If you do a search on the internet you will notice that there are several softwares to aid in the understanding and writing of regular expressions, but none of them solves a key problem: code maintenance.
A very elegant way of solving this problem is by using a library to construct expressions.Obviously reverting a regular expression is not a simple thing, but we can greatly improve its reading if we have a library that allows us to visually understand what this expression does.
Do note some email addresses marked as valid may be invalid for certain organizations, while some that are marked as invalid may actually be allowed in other organizations. Either way, learning to build custom regular expressions for the organizations you work for is paramount in order to cater for their needs. In case you get stuck, you can look at the following possible solutions. Do note that none of them will give you a 100% match on the above valid email test strings.
Regular expressions is a very powerful instrument to manipulate and extract strings. However, not all PHP developers know how to use regular expressions. This simple tutorial is intended to everyone who wants to get started with regular expressions in PHP.
You may also know that other programming languages like C# or Java have an option to "compile" a regular expression, that can be used to increase performance, because the same compiled regex can be applied to multiple strings without repeating the compilation process. There is no such a modifier in PHP because it is done automatically: every compiled regex is cached internally after the first usage:This extension maintains a global per-thread cache of compiled regular expressions (up to 4096).

Let's write our example script that will grab contents from some webpage, parse it with regular expressions and display the parsed data. Let's take Y Combinator News as example. We'll extract posted links, their text and score rating. After that, we'll order results by the score.
In this tutorial, we went in-depth on how to use regular expressions to write SQL statements in PostgreSQL. We can create dynamic SQL queries that use regular expressions to match patterns from a database column. The SQL LIKE operator in PostgreSQL can also match patterns, but the searches are more restricted. Greater flexibility and the ability to dynamically alter the size of the pattern to be matched are provided by regular expressions.
Your apps can search and replace text using regular expressions (often called RegEx), a pattern describes specific text to find in a string. You use the properties of the RegEx, RegExOptions and RegExMatch classes to define a regular expression and search or replace text using regular expressions. Regular Expressions can be a bit tricky to get the hang of, but they are fast and efficient ways to process text.
Retrie occupies a comfortable middle ground. Expressing rewrites as equations in the syntax of the target language (in this case, Haskell) is easier than defining a complex regular expression or AST traversal. Since equations are more powerful than regular expressions and rewrites can be scripted, Retrie is more powerful than string replacement alone. Retrie also leverages several techniques to narrow the search space before parsing and efficiently finding matches, which makes it faster than typical AST manipulation tools.
If you use to spend ages building and testing regular expressions, you might be interested in the online expression editor Rubular. Rubular is a handy way to test ruby-based regular expressions as you write them.
The regular expression language is relatively small and restricted, so not allpossible string processing tasks can be done using regular expressions. Thereare also tasks that can be done with regular expressions, but the expressionsturn out to be very complicated. In these cases, you may be better off writingPython code to do the processing; while Python code will be slower than anelaborate regular expression, it will also probably be more understandable.
Neither one of these regular expressions is bulletproof, but they will give you a good starting point for developing your own regular expressions. If you come up with a good one, why not post it as a comment to this article?
We have barely scratched the surface of regular expressions, but we have accomplished what we set out to do. At the beginning of this article, I promised that you would be able to write simple validators, and that you would know enough to dig further into the subject. At this point, you should be able to do both.
The query is called HeaderImageQuery and uses an alias called headerImage on the imageSharp field to make it more readable. My image called header.jpg, is identified by the argument passed into imageSharp that looks for a file with header in its name via regular expressions.
It is worth highlighting that while some are included, the admin panel does contain options to add or modify certain regular expressions in order to parse data from non-standard fields on compromised websites. JS Sniffer includes regular expression files for several different targeted fields as shown below.
The Regular expression Denial of Service (ReDoS) is a type of Denial of Service attack. Regular expressions are incredibly powerful, but they aren't very intuitive and can ultimately end up making it easy for attackers to take your site down.
The entire process of testing it against a 30 characters long string takes around ~52ms. But when given an invalid string, it takes nearly two seconds to complete the test, over ten times as long as it took to test a valid string. The dramatic difference is due to the way regular expressions get evaluated.
Roll up your sleeves Automators. This week Rose and David tackle regular expressions. What are they? How do you make them? Where do you use them? All those questions get answered in this episode. Regex isn't as daunting as it may first seem.
Tip: To build and test regular expressions, you can use RegEx tester tools such as regex101. This tool not only helps you in creating regular expressions, but it also helps you learn it.
You may find it a little odd that a hack who grew up using a language with the ain't keyword would fall so head over heels in love with something as obtuse and arcane as regular expressions. I'm not sure how that works. But it does. Regular expressions rock.They should absolutely be a key part of every modern coder's toolkit.
The quote is from Jamie Zawinski, a world class hacker who I admire greatly. If he's telling us not to use regular expressions, should we even bother? Maybe, if you live and die by soundbites. But there's a bit more to the story than that, as evidenced by Jeffrey Friedl's exhaustive research on the Zawinski quote. Zawinski himself commented on it. Analyzing the full text of Jamie's posts in the original 1997 thread, we find the following: 2b1af7f3a8
