Regular Expressions with .NET
$14.95 [eBook]


Book Cover
A good introduction for beginners, as well as experts who wish to learn the .NET way of Regex

Visual Basic .NET and C# may get all the attention, but it might surprise you to know that yet another language is built into Visual Studio - one that can be used in conjunction with VB .NET or any other .NET language. A language that is terse to such a degree that the term "concise" does not come close to describing its brevity of syntax. A language so cryptic that it can take hours to truly understand a single line of code.

The Regular Expression language is a language that can save you hours upon hours of time in any application that involves text processing. It is a language that can perform complex data validation tasks in a single line of code. It is a language that performs sophisticated search and replace operations on strings. It is a language that should be part of every programmer's "bag of tricks."

This ebook is a complete introduction to Regular Expressions that can even be read and understood by programmers who have never heard of them. It is also intended to help experienced Regular Expression programmers come up to speed quickly on the .NET implementation of Regular Expressions.

Table of Contents
