One Of The Best Regular Expression Tutorials I Have Come Across

By on

On one of my other blog posts, Steve (who clearly shares my love of RegEx.... and is smarter than me in that department) was telling me about Possessive quantifies in Regular Expressions. I had never heard of this and so, I tried to look it up on Google. What I found was a little confusing and I am not sure I understand it that well. But, in my searches I came across a Regular Expression Tutorial over on I had never seen it before and clicked through it. Upon a brief review, it seems to be one of the nicest RegEx tutorials that I have ever seen.

Take a look at it: Lesson: Regular Expressions

Usually, when I have questions about Regular Expressions, I turn to This is also an amazing sight, and perhaps has more information and a host of excellent examples. But, it might be a bit too much for people who have never dealt with regular expressions before. The tutorial on might be a bit easier to digest for beginners.

Of course, I am not the best one to judge as I use and LOVE regular expressions in Javascript, ColdFusion, and Java. So, I probably can't tell you which one would be easier to digest. They simply both rock.
