I do not use regular expression often enough to have instant recall of the metacharacters etc. and so this little book (at a pretty good price) which fits perfectly into a small pocket in my laptop bag is a MUST HAVE for me for those times I do need to write reg. expression code.
I don't leave home without it :-)
That is where this pocket reference comes in. The perfect tool to quickly jog your memory and remind you of that unusual rule. If you're new to regular expressions I'd recommend "Mastering Regular Expressions" first but, if you can, buy both. You won't regret it.
The 'if' test therefore evaluates to FALSE, ie no match.
I hope that's not typical.
Unlike some other pocket guides, this isn't just a reference, but actually contains some tutorial elements.
I appreciate the need to explain the variations between different implementations, but I would have preferred a more detailed (and simpler) description of the core elements of RegEx. For the price though, it's still worth purchasing.
