Learning Regular Expressions

P: n/a
If you are not new to VB.NET but are new to regular expressions, you need to get a free copy of "Pragmatic Guide to Regular Expressions for VB.NET Programmers". I wrote this guide because all of the sources that I researched for information on this topic, including Microsoft Help pages, did not properly address it from the viewpoint of someone new to regular expressions.

If you send me an email, I will return you a zipped file that includes a Word document, a VB.NET project plus a couple of other useful references that I have developed to assist in learning VB.NET. The Word document explains how to process regular expressions up to the point of using groups and the OR (|) character. The project contains a form that parses out over 100 predefined expressions into a verbal explanation of their behavior. You should find both of these useful while you are learning this topic.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Developing these materials is a work-in-progress. Someone needs to step to the plate and present this information in a useful format for programmers that are new to regular expressions.

If you are willing to share your notes with the general public, why not
write an article on Codeproject.com or a sample on GotDotNet.com?

It seems that Microsoft is using a new layout of message threads. If you want to email me, click on my name at the by: textbox at upper left corner of message.

It took me awhile to figure out how to get to my email address on this new layout. I was used to the layout that you get when you go to http://support.microsoft.com/newsgroups/default.aspx.
