Chapter 13. Using Regular Expressions > RegEx Support in ColdFusion

RegEx Support in ColdFusion

Now that you have an idea of what regular expressions are, you need to understand what kind of support ColdFusion provides for them. The basic facts are these:

  • The syntax you can use in your regular expressions (that is, the wildcards and such) is nearly identical to the syntax supported in Perl.

  • In ColdFusion, you use the reFind() and reReplace() functions to perform a RegEx operation. This is in contrast to the way regular expressions are invoked in Perl or JavaScript, which allow you to sprinkle them throughout your code almost as if the expressions were ordinary strings.
