3.1.1 Introduction to Selection
The second part of the processing pipeline requires us to master skills for specifying string patterns we want to match by means of regular expressions and acquaint ourselves with some powerful commands that use them. More speciﬁcally, we will learn to combine individual operators into a regular expression, select lines matching a regular expression, select and process data separated into ﬁelds, automate textual ﬁle changes, and extract data from XML and JSON ﬁles.
