.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.

Probably none of you need introductory material to regular expressions, but if you know anyone who does, RegexBuddy, whose tutorial is Cloudy's cited link, is a great (non-free) package if you are learning the things. Or there is the material in Robbins books on Awk which have very nice compact explanations. Though I found the Aho book on Awk much better to learn Awk itself from.

RE: RegexBuddy

I use The Regex Coach (http://weitz.de/regex-coach/) which is free, or donationware I should say.
