how long should a newbie in REGEX spending time figuring out?
Posted 18 June 2006 - 03:01 AM
and i think i'm spending too many hours just staring on an expression.
now tell me as a newbie on REGEX how many hours should a newbie spend on
figuring out and starring on one expression alone?
i think i'm spending 5 hours and 10 hours just for one expression alone.
is this bad for me as a newbie to REGEX or it's a normal routine?
ok, to give you an idea on what i'm starring at.
i'm figuring out how to upload multiple files using array, foreach and regex as well.
or is it now imperative for me to buy the book of Jeffrey Friedl's "Mastering Regular ExpressioN"?
thank you very much in advance on your comments and suggestions.

Regex has a very heavy "grasp factor": once you understand it, it becomes easy.

/ (\d+) # capture all digits a # then look for an 'a'... /x
