Make sure to learn one lesson about regex: Don't overuse it.

I've seen numerous regex problems where solving the task using an algorithmic language (such as C#) would be straightforward and simple - and flexible enough to handle with ease all the exceptions and special cases that really can give you a headache trying to do it as a regex.

And there is Geek&Poke: Yesterdays regex[^]

Disclaimer: The only pattern matching language I liked was SNOBOL, but I haven't seen it is use for a few decades now. SNOBOL is (/was) sort of a crossover between predicates and algorithmic programming - you could see it as a different kind of bool expression evaluation, in an otherwise algorithmic programming language. Especially the predicates were written in a way more readable format than in traditional regex. (I am not holding my breath waiting for SNOBOL to raise to a new stardom, though!)
