Simple explanation of Regex?

Is there a simple explanation of how to create Regex find and replace patterns?
I need to convert Czech dates like 31. října 1967 to 31 October 1967 and that kind of thing. I know it should be easy, and I have just about figure out how to actually find expressions, but not how to replace them. I would love to find some kind of resource that would teach Regex to a complete newbie with zero knowlege of programming rather than having to ask people to come up with solutions for me.

  • There is no simple explanation of regex, although many useful tasks can be performed with simple regexes.

    If you want a more extensive explanation with many practical translator-oriented examples beyond those provided by Alison and Paul, I have made a "book" available in the SDL AppStore.
