Well I've been learning PHP for quite some time now. I've never really had to use regular expressions, but if i want to be a good web programmer i'm going to have to learn them i guess -- although they look like they are gunna make my head hurt. does anybody know a good introduction tutorial?

-Thanks!

Regular expressions do look dawnting when you first have a look at them. However they become easier once you know the basics. This site has a quick intro tutorial on regular expressions.

Also you might want to check out regular-expressions.info too which is a site dedicated to learning regular expressions.
