Regular expressions rock my world.  (OK I'm a geek)

The O'Reilly book, "Mastering Regular Expressions" by Jeffrey E. F. Freidl is a great way to learn about this powerful matching language, and it's actually an entertaining read.

Great set of links, I'd like to learn about it as the usual method (experimentation) doesn't really cut it with regex.

Here is a really cool tutorial (video) and cheatsheet for learning regular expressions:

http://e-texteditor.com/b...ular_expressions_tutorial

This was a tremendous help for me when I started out trying to learn how to use regexes (for use when programming in ruby), and since then I have found more and more use for them.

The editor e ( http://e-texteditor.com ), that is used in the tutorial, is probably what has helped me most keeping my regex ability up-to-date and in use daily. It has a cool way of live highlighting what your regex matches in the text as you type it, that really helps you out when you try to use regexes while editing (kind of like a realtime regexbuddy that is always there when you need it).

(Posting here, despite a hiatus in the thread, as this topic is easy to find for anyone looking for regex help.)

Smashing Magazine has gathered quite a useful collection of items and links about regex's here

Speaking of Regular Expressions... Jan Goyvaerts, Regex-Guru and creator of RegexBuddy, EditPad Pro and PowerGrep, and keeper of http://www.regular-expressions.info/ website, has published a brand new book: Regular Expressions Cookbook through the good folks at O'Reilly. It is now freshly hot off the press (released just a couple days ago - my pre-ordered Amazon copy is currently on a UPS truck somewhere in the Midwest on its way to my house.)

If you want to buy it, you can do Jan a favor by ordering through Amazon using special links as he describes in a post on his private forum:

Quote from: Jan Goyvaerts
Regular Expression Cookbook is now available for pre-order.  If you click on the Amazon links in my blog post at http://www.regexguru.com/...-available-for-pre-order/ Amazon will pay me an affiliate commission, which will pretty much double the slice I get from what you pay for the book.

Although I've already read Jeffrey Friedl's masterpiece: "Mastering Regular Expressions - 3rd Edition", which is the definitive guide (the SlashDot review gave is a score of 11 out of 10), I have become a regex junkie and devour everything I can find on the subject. I'm hoping that Jan's new book will be as good as everything else he has created. His company is very well named indeed: Just Great Software.
