Escellent coverage of a surprisingly complex topic
on 17 April 2002
I bought this book so as to answer a couple of simple questions about regular expressions. I then found it surprisingly readable, and read it for pleasure.
The subject matter is difficult, largely because different regex engines work in subtly different ways - this is all clearly covered.
Above all, Friedl avoids the irritating patronising style of so many authors of computer books.
