What are regular expressions?
A regular expression (shortened as regex or regexp) is a sequence of characters that specifies a search pattern. Usually such patterns are used by string-searching algorithms for "find" or "find and replace" operations on strings, or for input validation. It is a technique developed in theoretical computer science and formal language theory. Regular expressions are used in search engines, search and replace dialogs of word processors and text editors, in text processing utilities. Many programming languages provide regex capabilities either built-in or via libraries, as it has uses in many situations.
