Regular expressions are extremely useful, because they allow us to work with text in terms of
patterns. They are considered the most sophisticated means of performing operations such as
string searching, manipulation, validation, and formatting in all applications that deal with text data.
Character recognition problem scenarios in sequence analysis that are ideally suited for the
application of regular expression algorithms. This paper describes a use of regular expressions in
this problem domain, and demonstrates how the effective use of regular expressions that can serve
to facilitate more efficient and more effective character recognition.
