Intensively researching Erlang books and additional resources on it, I have found that the topic of using Regular Expressions is either casually mentioned or not touched upon. Regular expressions are a powerful helper in any programming language. I am wondering how it is implemented in Erlang.
When I started to implement my CSV converter solution, which you can read about in the “Property-Based Testing with PropEr, Erlang, and Elixir” book’s Journal for input text encoding, I decided to try using the functionality of the Erlang re library, but I realized that its capabilities are very powerful and I need to understand it in more detail (its skillful use will provide a convenient tool for implementing various ideas).
I start reading “Introducing Regular Expressions”. The book’s source code examples and Erlang re library documentation gave me enough information to start my research (rebar3 based Erlang project implementation) into this area.
If anyone has anything to share on this topic, please do share!
