Regular Expressions Part 3

 


This is the final video of a three part series where I approach an advanced topic, regular expressions, to help programmers who have learnt a fair bit already but are struggling at times to get the results in scraping that they are looking for. This video takes what we scraped using regex in the previous video and how to groom the text to be presented the way we want it to be presented. I’ll be showing a few methods to get the job done! I’ll be demonstrating nesting commands in this video as well.
