Regular expressions in RPG

I learned something new today. Regular expressions are something I have used quite frequently on my Linux laptop at home but I hadn’t realised that they are natively supported in the IBM i ILE environment.

Thanks to Scott Klement at iProDeveloper, now I know.

This is a useful and powerful feature and one for which I can see many real-world applications. As soon as an opportunity presents itself, I shall be returning to Scott’s article, downloading the code bundle and taking full advantage of this functionality.
