    Hi,

    Think it would be handy to have a better understanding and use of regex. Could someone recommend a book focused on .net/powershell please?

    I learned mostly from this website: http://www.regular-expressions.info . I like that it has both general information, and engine-specific sections (under the "Applications and Languges" link on the left).

    PowerShell uses industry-standard regex syntax.

    PowerShell in Depth (Don Jones, Jeffery Hicks, Richard Siddaway) recommends Mastering Regular Expressions by Jeffrey E.F. Friedl and Regular Expression Pocket Reference by Tony Stubblebine for further reading and RegExLib for regular expressions for specific tasks.
