Don’t be fooled by the book’s catchy title, obviously courtesy of Sams marketing department. Just reading through the book’s 138 pages will take more than 10 minutes. But if you’re willing to sit down with this book for an hour or two, you can certainly learn to write regular expressions that do what you want.
Obviously, such a small book cannot be comprehensive. Even though the book’s cover mentions a variety of programming languages, the book does not tell you at all how to actually use regular expressions with particular programming languages or tools. For that, you’ll need to refer to the documentation that comes with the software you’re using.
If you’re completely new to regular expressions, Sams Teach Yourself Regular Expressions in 10 Minutes will get you up to speed quickly. I would definitely recommend you get yourself a copy. But if you’re already familiar with regular expressions, you’ll need to look elsewhere for in-depth information.
