Thanks for reading! Yes- I am one of the few I suppose. I do really appreciate patterns and love the terse nature of regex. I have only used it in Ruby so far however...

Luckily, that's a skill you can take with you to other languages! The differences from language to language tend to be pretty minimal if present at all.

I totally get what you mean regarding terseness and precision, but even after using them for years I find myself digging through documentation pretty much every time, I can't seem to keep it in my head. It's definitely a good tool for the job, though.
