"I introduce the notion of a partial derivative of a regular expression, and demonstrate an implementation (in clojure), and show how it can easily allow for capabilities not normally provided in most regex libraries.
Note: there will be no math, only code.
This talk is based on the paper "Regular expression derivatives re-examined" by Owens, Reppy, and Turon.
Slides and source code will be available before the talk- URLs posted to the list when they're available (need to finish writing them first).
