Unicode

Length: 00:08:22

Lesson Summary:

We've matched letters, numbers, and whitespace; but what about letters and characters outside of the American standard? Some regex flavors support the use of Unicode to match accented characters, umlauts, and more, opening up the ability to do things like properly verify names of all kinds and support languages besides English. In this lesson, we take a look at both matching individual characters and using Unicode character categories to match specific groups of characters.
