Rezension bezieht sich auf: Mastering Regular Expressions: Powerful Techniques for PERL and other Tools (Nutshell Handbook) (Taschenbuch)
In my opinion, one of the two best books from O'Reilly during the 1990s (the other being the original 1991 "purple camel book"). Friedl applies his perfectionist and completist nature fully to the task. He did his own layout, which is not that unusual in the technical publishing trade, but which definitely isn't the O'Reilly way. The book is better for it (probably much better) and for all the other places where his attention to detail and thoroughness takes command.
This book is not a good end to end read, but it goes very well if you read some of the beginning material and then read a page or three from time to time as you get a chance. I sometimes (only half jokingly) suggest to my students that they should replace their copy of Reader's Digest near their "thrones" with a copy of MRE. Then they can read about a new topic for 10 or 15 minutes and ponder it for the rest of the day, which, if you are new to the theory and reality of regular expressions, is about the perfect regimen.
