Regular Expressions

Cross-posted to: https://fsteeg.wordpress.com/2005/09/14/regular-expressions/

What I really like about Regular Expressions is that they take the idea of higher-level programming even further: You can describe the Problem to solve (like 'remove all vowels between consonants') rather than telling the machine what to do (like 'loop over the word, now if the current character is...').
