Template matching can use RegEx or Regular Expressions to perform complex pattern matching on text.
Regular Expressions can get very cryptic very quickly, so unless you are a programmer or already know RegEx, it will probably be much faster to use our simplified template format or contract our professional services to configure it for you.
A great tool for testing Regular Expressions is RegEx Buddy. This is what we use to build and test RegEx but there is unfortunately no free version.
RegEx 101 has a free online regular expressions tester.
Another good way to find RegEx examples is to simply google "regex" or "regular expression" plus the type of data you are trying to capture.
- Email address regular expression
- Phone number regular expression
- Street address regular expression
- City state zip regular expression
- US Canada zip code regular expression
- UK zip code regular expression
Regular-Expressions.info has one of the better and most extensive RegEx tutorials available.
