The regular expression is a sequence of characters that specifies a match pattern in text. Python supports the use of regular expressions in our code. 

The Use of Regular Expressions

The main domains in which Python shines are also the domains in which the use of regular expressions is relatively popular. 

String Searching & Validation
One of the most popular uses of regular expressions is searching for specific strings or substrings within a larger body of text. Whether looking for email addresses, phone numbers, URLs, or any other pattern, using regular expressions it would be relatively simple to locate these occurrences.

Data Validation
In order to process data, we should first ensure its quality and integrity.  We can check if a given string adheres to a specific pattern using regular expressions.  This is especially useful when we need to validate data coming from forms on websites and when we need to clean data from unwanted characters or anomalies. 

Texts Manipulation
Many text editors allow us to perform search and replace operations. It can be either to correct formatting issues, update templates with real content, or handle consistent changes throughout the text. 

Web Scraping
When scraping the web for data we can use regular expressions for finding content matched with specific patterns. 

System Logs Analysis
In many systems, logs are essential for troubleshooting and monitoring. We can use regular expressions to parse and analyze log files and extract information matched with specific patterns. 

Language Processing
When working on natural language processing tasks, regular expressions can assist us with sentence splitting, specific linguistics pattern identification, and with various other text-based machine learning tasks.
