Based on the fact I have given FIVE stars to the book, you may guess I was happy to find the information I needed to solve my problem.The book provides wealth of information on the syntax of regular expressions and their different flavors. The book represents a very well balanced fusion of the regular expression basics and details, which makes it a very valuable aid to any software developer.
The range of examples is broad - in a good sense. Most of them are practical, real-world applications for most programmers, so understanding what they're trying to accomplish really helped in understanding the "how" of the implementation.
Note: If you are a Windows regex user, the Regexbuddy program is highly recommended - it has built-in libraries containing nearly all of the regexes provided in this "Cookbook" as well as built-in regex related code snippets for all of the programming languages as well. Its an excellent piece of software and an indispensible aid to the process of learning regular expressions. (It even has a built-in private forum where you can ask questions of the author directly!) And be sure to check out Jan's resource: [...] for free online regex tutorials and reference. Bottom line: Jan knows regular expressions and is very adept at explaining them!
