<pre>Author/s : Tony Stubblebine Publisher : OReilly Category :Other Review by : Jeanne Boyarsky Rating : 7 horseshoes</pre> "Regular Expression -- Pocket Reference" is just as high in quality as it's big brother ("Mastering Regular Expressions.")
The book begins with a very brief review of regular expression concepts and patterns. For each language/tool, the book includes tables to reference the metacharacters, a reference for the API/syntax/library and four examples. A few of the languages have additional examples tailored specifically to that language.
If you are learning about regular expressions or only going to buy one regular expressions book, I recommend the "Mastering Regular Expressions.?" If you are knowledgeable about regular expressions and just need a review or reference, this book does the job nicely.
