Example text

4. The first line should have the word watch's, but the apostrophe and the ending -s are both removed, which also happens in line 2. The hyphenated word over-acuteness is reduced to over in the third line, and o'clock is truncated to the letter o in the fourth. Finally, the last line has underscores since this character is included in \w,and it is commonly used to denote italics in electronic texts. 4. The regex / (\w+)/ matches all the alphanumeric characters of a word only if it has no internal punctuation.

Many of the more sophisticated techniques later in this book rely on an initial analysis that starts with one or more searches. Before beginning with text patterns, consider the following question. Since humans are experts at understanding text, and, at present, computers are essentially illiterate, can a procedure as simple as a search really find something unexpected to a human? Yes, it can, and here is an example. Anyone fluent in English knows that the precedes its noun, so the following sentence is clearly ungrammatical.

If a pattern runs across two different lines of the input file, then it does not match the regex. 5. , and we see that { 1,} is denoted + and (0, } is denoted *, where {m,n} stands for at least m repetitions and at most n repetitions. 3 Summary of some of the special characters used by regular expressions with examples of strings that match. , [-0-91 Alphanumeric: [O-9a-zA-Z-1 [ ”0-9a-zA-Z-I Whitespace: space, tab, newline Not whitespace Word boundary Not a word boundary Any character denotes the start of a string $ denotes the end of a string ?
