One New Thing: Regular Expressions.

Well it may sound sad, but I am amazed at all the things I can do with search and replace using regular expressions. It’s basically just pattern matching to do find and replace, or format data for importing and exporting elsewhere, but since I wasn’t aware of how easy it can be to get a chunk of text and format it into something I could read I think I could quite happily start doing these the same way other people do crossword puzzles. ;) Textpad and Dreamweaver are the two programs I’ve been able to use this strange new skill in.
