Hi Folks,

I know that people keep trying to figure out how to use regEx to their 
advantadge (me included), this are two sites that I find very usefull:

http://www.regular-expressions.info/
This site got a very deep tutorial on RegEx and how to build right 
patterns! It's a must read! No text parsing is ever the same after 
reading and understanding RegEx.

http://www.regexlib.com/
This is a pattern repository, you can enter the site and search for a 
pattern to use in your own software. for example, having difficulties 
writting a email validator, I counted more than 5 email validators 
patterns there. From simple things that look only for "." and "@" to 
very complex patterns that will accept things like "name <email>" and 
things like that. Good place to have handy.
