…with much excitement and a tiny bit of nervousness, here I am with my first blog post on Coppelia! Starting with my beloved regex, this is a series of three posts. Thank you so much Simon Raper for having me here and I hope you guys will enjoy reading it at least as I enjoyed writing it!
Let’s do it…!
Learning and applying regex (short for regular expressions) can be a frustrating process. I have been there and spent many painful hours figuring it out. I’d now like to share what I’ve learnt in the hope that it will be useful to others.
What you’ll need
- A Java enabled browser
- An understanding of datasets in text format and different types of separators
- A text editor (I am using TextWrangler, but any is OK, more on that below)
