Regular Expressions

Jan 16, 2016, updated Aug 11, 2019 Development

Use raw string to escape backslash character in case there is Escape Sequence.

Example: “c:\yaser\now\rule” ‘\n’ and ‘\r’ will be consider as Escape Sequence. when using r”c:\yaser\now\rule” it will be escaped and the python representation will add extra backslash before each backslash. if you want to escape special character in regex don’t forgot to escape them.

Explain
