.NET (dotGNU too) Regardless of what type of data you're working with or what kind of application you're creating, you will undoubtedly need to work with strings. No matter how the data is stored, the end user always deals in human-readable text. As such, knowing how to work with strings is part of the essential knowledge that any .NET developer needs to make rich and compelling applications. In addition to showing you how to work with strings in the .NET Framework, this chapter will also introduce you to regular expressions. Also, Jeff Cogswell explains how to use regular expressions to simplify and enhance the power of your programmatic string searching, matching, and replacing.

Congratulations. You have linked to an article that claims to be about regular expressions which has NO discussion of regular expressions in it.

Then you followed it up with an article that supposedly explains regular expressions but only muddies the water by confusing the uninitiated about the difference between naive pattern matching and regular expressions.

Please stop. Informit articles suck.
