Beginners Tutorial for Regular Expressions in Python | Python Learning

In last few years, there has been a dramatic shift in usage of general purpose programming
languages for data science and machine learning. This was not always the case – a decade back
this thought would have met a lot of skeptic eyes!
This means that more people / organizations are using tools like Python / JavaScript for solving
their data needs. This is where Regular Expressions become super useful. Regular expressions are
normally the default way of data cleaning and wrangling in most of these tools. Be it extraction of
speci c parts of text from web pages, making sense of twitter data or preparing your data for text
mining – Regular expressions are your best bet for all these tasks.
Given their applicability, it makes sense to know them and use them appropriately.
 

What you will learn from this article?
In this article, I will walk you through usage, examples and applications of Regular Expressions.
Regular Expression are very popular among programmers  and can be applied in  many
programming languages like Java, JS, php, C++ etc. For developing our  understanding, we have
explained

this

concept

using

Python

programming

language

(https://www.analyticsvidhya.com/learning-paths-data-science-business-analytics-businessintelligence-big-data/learning-path-data-science-python/). Towards the end, I have solved
various problems using regular expressions.

Let’s get started!
 

What is Regular Expression and how is it used?

Use this code ‐‐> Import re The most common uses of regular expressions are: Search a string (search and match) Finding a string ( ndall) Break string into a sub strings (split) Replace part of a string (sub) Let’s look at the methods that library “re” provides to perform these tasks. Java and many others. perl. As I mentioned before. re. re. these characters have a special meaning. regular expression is a sequence of character(s) mainly used to nd and replace patterns in a string or le. learning them helps in multiple ways (more on this later).com/blog/2015/06/regular­expression­python/ 3/23 . So you need to import library re before you can use regular expressions in Python.com/learning-paths-data-sciencebusiness-analytics-business-intelligence-big-data/learning-path-r-data-science/).

I will discuss: 1.sub() 6.split() 5. re.   What are various methods of Regular Expressions? The ‘re’ package provides multiple methods to perform queries on an input string.11/23/2016 Beginners Tutorial for Regular Expressions in Python | Python Learning What is Regular Expression and how is it used? Simply put. re. re. re. Here are the most commonly used methods.2…) In Python.b. Regular expressions use two types of characters: a) Meta characters: As the name suggests.analyticsvidhya.1. ndall() 4. we have module “re” that helps with regular expressions. similar to * in wild card.

 if we look for only Analytics.analyticsvidhya.match(r'AV'. the pattern will not match. it designates a python raw string. it shows that pattern match has been found.match(r'AV'. string): This method  nds match if it occurs at start of the string.match(pattern. To print the matching string we’ll use method group (It helps to return the matching string). Let’s perform it in python now. 'AV Analytics Vidhya AV')  print result  Output:  <_sre.SRE_Match object at 0x0000000009BE4370> Above. calling match() on the string ‘AV Analytics AV’ and looking for a pattern ‘AV’ will match.11/23/2016 Beginners Tutorial for Regular Expressions in Python | Python Learning Let’s look at them one by one. result = re.com/blog/2015/06/regular­expression­python/ 4/23 . Use “r” at the start of the pattern string.   re. Here we see that string is not starting with ‘AV’ so it should return no match. Code import re  result = re. However. 'AV Analytics Vidhya AV')  print result. Let’s see what we get: Code https://www. For example.group(0)      Output:  AV Let’s now nd ‘Analytics’ in the given string.

Code result = re.   re. Unlike previous method.com/blog/2015/06/regular­expression­python/ 5/23 . 'AV Analytics Vidhya AV')  print result. string): It is similar to match() but it doesn’t restrict us to nd matches at the beginning of the string only. 'AV Analytics Vidhya AV')  print result       Output:   None There are methods like start() and end() to know the start and end position of matching pattern in the string.search(pattern.analyticsvidhya.match(r'AV'.end()    Output:  0  2 Above you can see that start and end position of matching pattern ‘AV’ in the string and sometime it helps a lot while performing manipulation with the string. 'AV Analytics Vidhya AV')  print result. Code result = re.

In this case it does the maximum splits that can be done. it will split the string.

If we will use method ndall to search ‘AV’ in given string it will return both occurrence of  AV. string): It helps to get a list of all matching patterns. While  searching a string. 'AV Analytics Vidhya AV')  print result  Output:  ['AV'. ndall()  always. I would recommend you to use re.11/23/2016 Beginners Tutorial for Regular Expressions in Python | Python Learning Here you can see that. Code result=re.findall (pattern.split(pattern.findall(r'AV'.
