Smalltalk by example: Regular expressions


GNU Smalltalk 2.3 introduced the Smalltalk.Regex class definition. After this, you should be able to succesfully run Regex inspect ! within gst.


fromString is probably the best initialization to use.

|reg match|
reg := 'he.lo' asString.
reg asString "Returns the string 'he.lo'".
match := 'hello' =~ reg. "Returns a MatchingRegexResults "
match inspect .


For matchin a Regex to a pattern, the special =~ binary operator has been created.
