Hi Guys!

I know that there are methods in the String class which do some String manipulation but I've come across to this so called "regular expression" which also talks about Strings. What is this regular expression? How is it use in java?

regards,

Mario

Unfortunately, "regular expressions" is not really a simple topic, in some ways it is arguable more complex than Java itself. I suggest that you start with the Sun
tutorial on regular expressions.
