Regular Expressions for Technical Writers

A session at tcworld conference 2016

Tuesday 8th November, 2016

4:15pm to 6:00pm (CET)

Regular expressions (regexes) may be the most powerful but least used tool available to authors. Most authoring tools provide a Regex option in the search dialog, but when did you use it last? A regex is a special syntax that matches on a series of characters. Regexes can be complex but a simple regex can do amazing things. What's nice is that you can learn this language slowly on an as-needed basis, and it's not tool-specific. This presentation shows real regexes that you can use in your daily work to potentially save considerable time from tedious search and replace operations.
