RegEx

It’s power and complex.

I was gonna write a blog post, but I got sucked into learning regex for hours… and I’m still baffled at the syntax…

One thing is for sure…. backlooks are difficult without context awareness (variables)…..

Then there’s learning about Anchors or “automatic zero-width assertions” … ooooeeeeeee that’s a mouthful.

Ugh man…  I’ll eventually get the results I want, just a matter of time…

Interesting how to get everything but a set string.

Don’t forget it’s sometimes OK to be Greedy and Lazy.

It amazes me how much time I’ve spent reading up on regex… I knew it was powerful… but man…
