*der.hans: Regular Expressions-A guided tour *

*Description: *
Example driven introduction to regular expressions. The talk uses plain
English to explain regular expression concepts, syntax and language.
Common tools such as grep, sed and awk will provide conduits for
demonstrating regular expressions.

Many of our favorite system administration tools use regular expressions
for text matching. While using plain English to describe regular
expressions the example driven introduction will explain regular
expression concepts, syntax and language. Examples will include common
tools such as grep, sed and awk.
