General Development "In this article a simple usage of regular expressions is described. Its intention is to bring users to try the most powerful search and replace paradigm available and hopefully start using it. This however can not replace good tutorials available on the sites that are also mentioned in this article. The article is written reproducing actual steps I took to complete my task, to show the specifics and possible problems."

I don't think standardization's that big a deal. It's like programming: you learn the common concepts once or twice and then you can pick up new languages really quickly.

Nah, the problem with RE aren't diffrent syntax. Most of the time it's the missing features that annoys me.

What features are in question? (This is a serious question because I really thought it's pretty obvious what a RE search is and what isn't - for programmers, but then average users can't deal with REs anyway).
