Regular Expressions Resource CenterMinimize

Welcome to the Regular Expressions Resource Center—the first in our Computer Science Series. Regular expressions are particularly useful for pattern matching—for example, regular expressions could describe the format of a phone number or an ISBN for a book. Regular expressions capabilities are available in many popular programming languages like Java and C# (through their respective class libraries), C++ (through the Boost Libraries) and more.
