    In practice, you can use regular expressions with whatever data you can access using the application or programming language you are working with. Regular Expressions (REGEX) are language default functions (more of an expression) used for things like pattern matching, sorting, searching and many others.

    Regular expressions (“regex“) are special strings representing a pattern to be matched in a search operation. … For instance, in a regular expression the metacharacter ^ means “not”. So, while “a” means “match lowercase a”, “^a”means “do not match lowercase a”

    All finite languages are regular; in particular the empty string language {ε} = Ø* isregular. Other typical examples include the language consisting of all strings over the alphabet {a, b} which contain an even number of as, or the language consisting of all strings of the form: several as followed by several bs.

    There are three ways to write the regex example in Java.
    1. import java.util.regex.*;
    2. public class RegexExample1{
    3. public static void main(String args[]){
    4. //1st way.
    5. Pattern p = Pattern.compile(“.s”);//. represents single character.
    6. Matcher m = p.matcher(“as”);
    7. boolean b = m.matches();
    8. //2nd way.

    A regular expression is a special sequence of characters that helps you match or find other strings or sets of strings, using a specialized syntax held in a pattern. They can be used to search, edit, or manipulate text and data.

    regular expression is an object that describes a pattern of characters. Regular expressions are used to perform pattern-matching and “search-and-replace” functions on text.
