The Barnes & Noble Review
Mainstream Windows developers are discovering what Unix and Perl developers have long known: Regular expressions are immensely powerful. Nathan Good’s 100 recipes let you put them to work for you immediately, even as you gradually learn the underlying concepts and techniques. They’ll help you handle practically any string-related challenge, in whatever language you choose: ASP.NET, C#, VB.NET, VBScript, even JavaScript.

Want to extract a path from a URL? Good presents the code and carefully explains how it works. How about converting a tab-delimited file to CSV (or vice versa)? Also here. Ditto for validating everything from Social Security numbers to IP addresses. There’s a full chapter on regex applications for HTML/XML; and 25 techniques for cleaning up source code and streamlining the programming process. If you haven’t realized how useful regular expressions can be, here’s all the proof you need. Bill Camarda, from the July 2005 Read Only
