On CatsWhoCode.com today there's a new article listing fifteen handy regular expressions you might find useful in your day-to-day development (as well as a brief introduction to what regular expressions are).
Regular expressions are a very useful tool for developers. They allow to find, identify or replace text, words or any kind of characters. In this article, I have compiled 15+ extremely useful regular expressions that any web developer should have in his toolkit.
Here's just some of the expressions on the list:
- Enlight a word from a text
- Remove repeated words (case insensitive)
- Matching a XML/HTML tag
- Matching hexadecimal color values
- Parsing Apache logs
