Regular Expressions Fundamentals, Moe Nasser
6:45 PM
Suspenders Bar and Restaurant backroom
111 Broadway

This meeting will cover regex basics, and based on audience
participation, it may go well beyond.

A regular expression (regex) is a sequence of characters describing a
search pattern. Regular expressions can match just about anything. Their
power can shorten code, turbo-charge your use of interactive UNIX
shells, and change the way you use your text editor. And, they're fun.
Regular expressions are everywhere. Regular expression processors exist
in *every* programming language, and they are fundamental to grep(1),
sed(1), awk(1)- as well as UNIX shells. Classic text editors have regex
processing at their core, vi(1), emacs(1), based on ed(1). You may even
use regular expressions without consciously knowing it!


There will be NO December meeting for the first Wednesday of the month.

December 2013 Technical Community Meta-Party

As we did last year, we are working with other technical user groups in
New York City for a holiday party.  The date is being determined, but
once again there will be an open bar with hors d'oeuvres, and a great
opportunity to network.
