      Presentation by William Ward:
      "Regular Expressions"

      Whether running a simple grep command or writing a big Perl
      program, a thorough understanding of regular expressions is an
      essential skill for any system administrator. The talk will
      describe the history, syntax, and best practices for regular
      expressions; how a well-written regular expression can
      dramatically improve the speed of pattern matching; and give
      tips for using regular expressions in Perl programs.

      William Ward has been managing Unix and Linux computers since
      1990. He has been programming Perl since 1993 and teaching
      Perl since 1999 at De Anza College and through his company,
      Bay View Training. He is also a member of two Toastmasters
      clubs, including ProToasties, a club for professional
      speakers, and received the Competent Toastmaster award in
      2004. William is also the President of PenLUG.

      Members' Minutes

      Members will have an opportunity to take a few minutes to...

          * Describe their latest Linux discovery
          * Ask questions and get help from other members
          * Discuss Linux projects

      You can just stand up and talk, or give a short demo or
      presentation. If you need audio/visual support for your Members'
      Minute, please contact me in advance to arrange for your needs.

      We have a limited number of books courtesy of Prentice-Hall and
      O'Reilly to give away as an added inducement to participate in this
      portion of the meeting.  :-)


      Although it is NOT required, we like to have an idea of how many
      people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if
      you are planning to attend.
