I don't consider myself an 'authority' enough on regular expressions  
to make this edit (although I can explain the basics in Python). So,  
I thought I would throw this out to the community and see if anyone  
wanted to take the challenge:


Python is mentioned twice at the bottom. It's not, however, used in  
the examples. Not every program language can be listed as an example.  
Here is the text (if anyone is interested):

Regular expressions are used by many text editors, utilities, and  
programming languages to search and manipulate text based on  
patterns. For example, Perl, Ruby and Tcl have a powerful regular  
expression engine built directly into their syntax. Several utilities  
provided by Unix distributions—including the editor ed and the filter  
grep—were the first to popularize the concept of regular expressions.
