Regular expressions allow us to take the most complicated pieces of text and match the patterns within them for a variety of results, but to learn regular expressions we have to start somewhere. Using a combination of literals, digits, and word characters, alongside some basic text processing commands (such as grep), we can match product IDs and architectures and parse down a large product list into something more manageable.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
