String Recursion

Posted by Matt Gerrans on October 21, 2001 at 1:09 PM

Sounds like you need regular expressions.

  • J2SE 1.4 will have them in util.regex, but that is not yet released. You can download or find more details on the beta on Sun's website (above link).
  • If you don't want to use a beta you could use Jython, which is Python running on Java.
  • Finally, there are third party tools for Java that do regular expressions; go to Sun's Solution Marketplace and search for "regular expression."
