C# Regular Expressions

Regular expressions have been used in various programming languages and tools for many years. The .NET Base Class Libraries include a namespace and a set of classes for utilizing the power of regular expressions. They are designed to be compatible with Perl 5 regular expressions whenever possible.

In addition, the regexp classes implement some additional functionality, such as named capture groups, right- to-left pattern matching, and expression compilation.

In this article, I’ll provide a quick overview of the classes and methods of the System.Text.RegularExpression assembly, some examples of matching and replacing strings, a more detailed walk-through of a grouping structure, and finally, a set of cookbook expressions for use in your own applications.
