Ce livre est d'après moi la meilleure façon d'apprendre à utiliser les expressions régulières. Il est facile à comprendre et donne beaucoup d'exemple.

If you haven't used regular expressions in a while and need a quick refresher or you're just starting out then buy this book! It's quick and easy to read. Once you're done with this book then you'll be immediately productive for the task at hand. You'll even be unintimidated by those higher level books. This may be a small inexpensive book but it offers so much and is worth more than you'll pay. Ben Forta writes this book in a manner where his examples can be used by many programming languages. He discusses the nuances of each language and even provides a link to a user friendly regular expression tester for each language which can save you a lot of time.

Regular expressions come up in many popular editors, search engines,and parsers. Knowing regular expressions can make your favorite tool even more of a favorite. Knowing them as a programmer can also make you a more productive programmer. Instead of writing your own parser, simply use a regular expression with your favorite programming language such as PERL, PHP, Java, Python, etc.
This book is a very handy guide to get you up and running quickly
with regular expressions. It's not comprehensive but it's likely to tell you just what you need to know 90% of the time. It quickly, concisely covers the basics: pattern matching for single, multiple, or sets of characters, repeats, certain types of characters such as digits, the nth occurrence, and nesting. The book has examples of everything it covers with a thoughtful analysis.
As a surprise bonus, this book comes with two appendices. It tells you how to use regular expressions in popular tools and languages such as grep, MySQL, and Java. It also gives the pattern matches for common items such as zip codes, phone numbers, IP addresses, e-mails, comments, and credit card numbers. I recommend this book to anyone who ever needs to find a string quickly out of a bunch of text.

Pop open this book and about 2 hours later you'll have regular expressions down. At least, I did! A very helpful chapter on parsing HTML solved an immediate problem I had. And I find all the examples I tried works with Jython, the Python scripting language implemented in Java, that I use in TestMaker, my open-source framework for testing Web-enabled applications for scalability, functionality, and performance. -Frank Cohen, PushToTest
