Regular expressions

January 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A

Regular expressions are perfectly suited for people who like puzzles. Regular expressions are a sequence of characters used to define a search pattern. They are commonly used to do “find” and “find and replace” string operations. They are also used to validate strings like phone numbers, passwords, etc. in data entry. Regular expression capabilities can be found in a variety of programming languages and software like ArcGIS, Java, Javascript, Matlab, Perl, PHP, Python, R, Visual Basic, etc. and some text editors. The workshop will start with the basics and move onto more advanced topics like backreferences and assertions. The workshop will consist of hands-on example problems. Learn to search beyond “*.txt”. The tutorials will be conducted using Python. A basic programming background is helpful but not required for this workshop.
