I am having some trouble trying to learn more about pattern matching and
when to use it over regular expressions.
"pattern matching" vs "regular expressions"
With Google only seems to lead to discussions about regular expressions.
I am hoping to avoid paying for Erlang and Prolog books.
I hope this is appropriate....maybe I can explain what I am trying to
I work with scientific instruments and right now I am trying to build a
disassembler. I am assuming that all of the commands that an instrument
will respond to are encoded in it's firmware. It's my goal to extract
these, that way I(and others) could control instrumentation without
access to it's expensive proprietary software.
Does Tamale for disassembly sound plausible?
