A regular expression, or regexp, is a way of describing a set of strings. Because regular expressions are such a fundamental part of awk programming, their format and use deserve a separate chapter.
A regular expression enclosed in slashes (
Initially, the examples in this chapter are simple. As we explain more about how regular expressions work, we will present more complicated instances.See All Chapters

In the Web Application flow (also known as the Authorization Code
flow), the resource owner is first redirected by the application to the
OAuth authorization server at the API provider. The authorization server
checks to see if the user has an active session. If she does, the
authorization server prompts her for access to the requested data. After she
grants access, she is redirected back to the web application and an
authorization code is included in the URL as the
Sound confusing? Figure2-1 shows the flow step-by-step, based on a diagram from the specification.

EVER SINCE HIS FIRST ARRIVAL IN 1864, COLORADANS HAD FOL-lowed Hill’s activities with interest. He was respected as both a scientist and an entrepreneur, and people watched his efforts to find a solution to the riddle of the sulfurets. But when the news arrived that he was about to build a smelter, many were skeptical. James E. Lyon had just failed, and here was Professor Hill about to try the same method. The “process mania” had returned again, many thought.
Hill and his associates had no illusions about the speculative nature of the Boston and Colorado Smelting Company, and they laid careful plans. At meetings in New England, they decided to construct a small plant that would have two roasting furnaces and one smelting unit to produce copper matte. Though it would be small by Welsh standards, the furnaces would be the largest size in use, so that Hill could take advantage of the economies of scale, an important consideration in a high-cost mining region. But Hill and his colleagues decided not to erect a refinery, since the smelter would not produce enough matte to make separation economically feasible. Instead, they negotiated a contract with Vivian & Sons and prepared to ship the matte to Swansea. Clearly, Hill and his associates wished to conserve their limited capital resources and minimize whatever losses they would have to absorb if so speculative an enterprise should fail.1See All Chapters

Tel-Aviv did not want to be a city. In fact, it was afraid to be a city. The fear arose from the anti-urban trend and the negative image of the city—“the dark city”—in the nineteenth century, as well as the Zionist concern that the city would attract most of the new immigrants and would compete with the agricultural settlements for resources. Only in the 1930s did Tel-Aviv realize that it was becoming a city after all.
What it really meant to be was a suburb, or a modern small town, but certainly not something on the order of the average European city. Even today, Tel-Aviv, with 390,000 residents, is certainly not a large city.
From the perspective of the world outside Europe, there is nothing special about the founding of Tel-Aviv one hundred years ago. During the nineteenth century, outside the continent, and especially in the United States, many cities were established, and not as a result of government initiative. Within Europe, however, the situation was different; the only new city in the last 200 years is Odessa, which was founded by the Czarist government at the end of the eighteenth century.1 Within Eretz-Israel the situation was also different. Tel-Aviv is the only new city since Ramle was established in 717 BCE by the Umayyad caliph Sulayman ibn Abd al-Malik. It is the first so-called “Jewish city” since King Herod built Caesarea in 20–10 BCE and Tiberias was founded by King Herod Antipas in 22–17 BCE. Thus Tel-Aviv was the first city founded in Eretz-Israel in 1,200 years, and it was the first Jewish city founded there in some 2,000 years.See All Chapters
