June 2007

Peter Maddin showed us the use of Regular expressions.

Regular Expressions are a widely-used method of specifying patterns of text to search for. Special metacharacters allow You to specify, for instance, that a particular string You are looking for occurs at the beginning or end of a line, or contains n recurrences of a certain character.

Regular expressions look ugly for novices, but really they are a very simple (well, usually simple ), handy and powerful tool.

There are a few Regular Expression modules for Win32 Delphi, but most of them are commercial and can be expensive.

Fortunately there is one that is freeware -TRegExpr.

This is a very simple regular expression library is written by Andrey V. Sorokin from Saint Petersburg, Russia. While it may lack some the more sophisticated features of the commercial alternatives, it will probably meet most of your requirements.

TRegExpr can be downloaded from

Its not an installable component but a unit you just add to your project. It is very simple and straight forward to use. The only tricky thing is the syntax of regular expressions themselves.
