There's a great O'Reilly book called Mastering Regular Expressions. I'm not
sure if this is avilable in ebook format tho. Hope you find it, it's really
complete and might be abit more than you really want to know about pattern
matching but it's still interesting. :)

(talking to the Beastie Boys) 
Fry: Wow. I love you guys. Back in the 20th century, I had all five of
 your albums.
Ad-Rock: That was a thousand years ago. Now we got seven. 
Fry: Cool. Can I borrow the new ones. And a couple of blank tapes?
