Because of the use of backslashes in patterns, you are usually better off defining regular expressions with raw strings, e.g. r"abc". 2.2.2 Compiling regular expressions When a regular expression is to be used more than once, you should consider compiling it. Import sys, re pat = re.compile('aa[bc]*dd') while 1: line = raw_input('Enter a line ("q" to quit):') if line == 'q': break if pat.search(line): print 'matched:', line else: print 'no match:', line Comments: We import module re in order to use regular expresions.re.compile() compiles a regular expression so that we can reuse the compiled regular expression without compiling it repeatedly.
