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.
Unlike some other pocket guides, this isn't just a reference, but actually contains some tutorial elements.
Good reminder of syntax in various programming languages and Unix/Linux shell tools, also covers unicode. Nice intro, with index.
Great companion to the other, fatter owl book.
An advantage and a disadvantage is that instead of concentrating on UNIX we get sidetracked on many secondary and transitory environments. The advantage is you can talk regular expressions with everyone. The disadvantage is I prefer concentration on AIX, HP/UX, SCO, SUN and other real programming environments; they could show all the different commands and integrated regular expressions.
Definition: Regular expressions are a language used for parsing and manipulating text. They are often used to perform complex search-and-replace operations and to validate the text data is Well-formed.
I use a lot of vi and sed so regular expression is regularly used.
Bottom line is there are better books for specific environments. This one crosses over disciplines and you never know with whom you may need to converse.
