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.
