Do you get Regular Expressions?

If not, maybe you should spend a little time reading “The absolute bare minimum every programmer should know about regular expressions” from Mike.

Mike lays out a really nice introduction to regular expressions. Most of the constructs explained are supported in Programmer’s Notepad, a few are not currently supported. In the future I hope to eventually migrate to PCRE for the expressions. This will provide full Perl Compatible regular expressions.

I regularly use Regular Expressions in my daily programming and text editing work - if you’ve not yet grown to love them then spend some time trying them out for common editing tasks - you’ll know when you “get it”.
