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:

Would you like to use regular expressions with the classic command line utilities find, grep, sed and awk? These venerable Unix utilities allow you to search, filter and transform large amounts of text (including many common data formats) efficiently and repeatably. This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.

 

You’ll learn how to use:

  • find to locate files and directories matching regexes.
  • grep to filter lines in files based on pattern matches. 
  • sed to find and replace using regular expressions and captures.
  • awk to work with row- and column-oriented data

 

PLEASE NOTE: 
This course assumes prior knowledge of the basic syntax of regular expressions. If you're new to regular expressions or would like a refresher, take our Powerful Text Searching & Matching with Regular Expressions course first. This course also assumes basic familiarity with the Bash command line environment found on GNU/Linux and other Unix-like environments. Take our Introduction to Unix for HPC course to get up to speed quickly.

  

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
All researchers and research students with prior knowledge of the basic syntax of regular expressions and basic familiarity with the Bash command line environment found on GNU/Linux and other Unix-like environments.
