Have you ever wanted to extract phone numbers out of a block of unstructured text? Or email addresses? Or find all the words that start with “e” and end with “ed”, no matter their length? Regular Expressions (regexes) are a powerful way to handle a multitude of different types of data. They can be used to search through text for patterns, and make regular, programmatic replacements allowing you to wield great power over your data.
Come along to this workshop to learn what they can do and how to apply them to your research.
