A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services. 

 

ABOUT THIS SESSION:

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 for short) are a powerful way to match and make substitutions to text. Come along to this workshop to learn what they can do and how to apply them to your research. 

This 2-hour course has been specifically written for researchers and research students who want to learn about how regular expressions can be used to search text in ways far more powerful than traditional “search” and “replace”. This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.

Course objectives:

  • How to use the http://regexr.com tool to test a regular expression against some text.

  • How to construct simple regular expressions to find all capitalised words; all numbers; all words that start with a specific set of letters, etc. in a block of text.

  • How to build up a complex regular expression incrementally.

  • How to find helpful resources covering regular expressions on the web.

PLEASE NOTE: 

No previous knowledge of Regexes is required.


WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

This course has been specifically written for researchers and higher degree research students who want to learn about how regular expressions can be used to search text in ways far more powerful than traditional “search” and “replace”.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
