Search and Replace with Regular Expressions
By the way, if you are wondering, the code in Listings 1 and 2 is an example of "LINQ to SQL" code that shows just how easy it is to create an object relational mapping and use LINQ to query SQL Server tables. (For more on LINQ to SQL, check out my upcoming book LINQ Unleashed: for C# from Sams in July 2008.)
It is worth noting that Visual Studio's Regular expressions aren't identical to regular expressions in the framework. One more thing to learn is occasionally being able to 'fix code' written large and quickly is a valuable and magical trick to have up your sleeve.
