Regular expressions are a way to define an advanced search pattern that can be very useful for manipulating text, among other things. They are used quite a bit in programming languages but in this case, I am showing how I use them in a text editor to manipulate text copied from a website into a clean list format. This isn’t so much a tutorial as it is a real world example of how you can use regular expressions to speed up your work. And I’ll admit – they are just fun to use!
