Issue #199: A New Approach to Regular Expressions – Regex meets natural English with Simple Regex Language

Tired of composing and deciphering those weird, inscrutable strings of characters known as regular expressions? This month we show you Simple Regex Language (SRL), an innovative tool that lets you create regular expressions using simple English commands.

Other highlights:

  • Systemd Graphic Tools – You don't need to be a command-line junkie to keep an eye on the systemd service manager. We show you some graphic front ends that offer a friendlier view.
  • Amazon Echo's Alexa – This month's Programming Snapshot shows how you can teach the Alexa assistant that lives in your Amazon Echo some new tricks.

You'll find more great articles in our Linux Voice section, including a practical lesson on network sniffers and a look at the free TensorFlow library for artificial intelligence applications.

On the DVD: CentOS Release 1611 (64-bit Install) and Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon (32-bit Live)
