2011-08-11 : Check out the Regex Parser extension!

As stated earlier, Human Inference is dedicated to deliver a rich set of extensions to the DataCleaner community, as well as we are seeing third party interest in contributing to the ExtensionSwap.

Today we've published a new extension which many DataCleaner users will hopefully find useful: The Regex parser.

With this extension you can easily implement your own parsing logic around regular expressions. The idea is that you use a regular expression to identify groups in your strings. These substring groups are extracted from the original value and isolated so you can process them individually. A quite nice application of DataCleaner's transformer mechanism!

For more information on how to create your own extensions, please refer to the DataCleaner develop page.
