Interesting Links – Week of 2015 / 08 / 10

Happy Monday all! In order to help get you through the week, here are some of my geeky links from last week.

This week I am kind of on a regular expression kick. I am trying to parse some crazy large word documents and read some ranges, in the format of “xxx to xxx *”, where xxx is a double or integer. My theory is that using regular expressions instead of string matching will make things far easier, as currently the code does a String.Split on ” to “, but that doesn’t account for the cases where there is a value and then unit at the end such as “1.1 to 3.2 ml”. If I have time I might write a quick thing up about working with regular expressions, though I’ll have to understand them better myself as I don’t want to spread wrong information. If anyone has any helpful regex tutorials or sites, I’d love to hear from them.
