    public string UploadImage(Image img)
                //get a dev key from, anonymous usage (no user auth) only.
                string devkey = "YOUR_CLIENT_ID (e.g. abcde1f234567g8)";
                //define the WebClient we'll use to communicate with Imgur.
                WebClient w = new WebClient();
                //adds the Header to authorize this application with Imgur, must include a valid CLIENT_ID from 'devkey' above.
                w.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Client-ID " + devkey);
                System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection Keys = new System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection();
                    //Converts the image to a byte array so it can be turned into a string for upload.
                    using (MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream())
                        img.Save(stream, ImageFormat.Png);
                        Keys.Add("image", Convert.ToBase64String(stream.ToArray()));
                    //uploads the string-formatted-image and waits for the response.
                    byte[] responseArray = w.UploadValues("", Keys);
                    dynamic result = Encoding.ASCII.GetString(responseArray);
                    //formats the (long and technical) result into just the direct image link.
                    Regex reg = new Regex("link\":\"(.*?)\""); Match match = reg.Match(result);
                    string url = match.ToString().Replace("link\":\"", "").Replace("\"", "").Replace("\\/", "/");

    How to sort a Javascript array parsing elements using regex pattern

    The Javascript Array.sort() method accepts a callback function to compare two elements of the array using a specific logic. The callback function below may help you in sorting an array matching a particular regular expression pattern. The format of elements in array is x/y/z, where x, y and z are integers, eg "5/10/2". I need to sort the eleme
    var myCompare = function(a,b) {
    	var matchPattern_A = /^([0-9]+)\/([0-9]+)\/([0-9]+)$/g.exec(a);
    	var matchPattern_B = /^([0-9]+)\/([0-9]+)\/([0-9]+)$/g.exec(b);
    	if(matchPattern_A && matchPattern_B)
    		//Apply regex sort
    		//I need to sort based on match[1], match[2], match[3]
    		console.log('Apply regex sort');
    		if (parseInt(matchPattern_A[1], 10) < parseInt(matchPattern_B[1], 10))
    			return -1;
    		if (parseInt(matchPattern_A[1], 10) > parseInt(matchPattern_B[1], 10))
    			return 1;
    		else {
    			if (parseInt(matchPattern_A[2], 10) < parseInt(matchPattern_B[2], 10))
    				return -1;
    			if (parseInt(matchPattern_A[2], 10) > parseInt(matchPattern_B[2], 10))
    				return 1;
    			else {
    				if (parseInt(matchPattern_A[3], 10) < parseInt(matchPattern_B[3], 10))
    					return -1;
    				if (parseInt(matchPattern_A[3], 10) > parseInt(matchPattern_B[3], 10))
    					return 1;
    				return 0;
    	else {
    		//Apply basic lexicographic sort
    		console.log('Apply basic lexicographic sort');
    		if (a < b)
    			return -1;
    		if (a > b)
    			return 1;
    		return 0;
    var myArr = [ '5/4/30', '5/10/2', '5/4/3', '1/3/8'];
    /*  Example,
        having an array as
        ['5/4/30', '5/10/2', '5/4/3', '1/3/8']
        it will be sorted as
        ['1/3/8', '5/4/3', '5/4/30', '5/10/2']

    C#: How to dinamically check a string and its length using a Regex

    Thsi method creates a Regex by replacing a placeholder as minimum and maximum length (e.g. in case of username and / or password verifiers...). It can be extended also to apply different Regex with respect to some particular business logic.
    static private string s_nameRegEx = @"^[_a-zA-Z][_a-zA-Z0-9-. ]{ç,§}$"; //'ç' is a placeholder for actual minimum length, '§' is a placeholder for actual maximum length
    public static bool NameIsValid(string candidateName, int minimumLen, bool checkOnlyLen, int maxLen = int.MaxValue)
        if (candidateName == null)
            return (minimumLen == 0); //return false if there's a minimum len
        string trimmedName = candidateName.Trim();
        if ((trimmedName.Length < minimumLen) || (trimmedName.Length > maxLen))
            return false;
        if (checkOnlyLen)
            return true;
        Regex nameExpr = new Regex(s_nameRegEx.Replace("ç", (minimumLen - 1) + "").Replace("§", (maxLen - 1) + ""));
        return nameExpr.IsMatch(trimmedName);

    C#: Replace an exact word in a sentence

    Same as String.Replace but with case-insensitive matches and search for the exact word. E.g. searching in "Java and Javascript with Java." the word 'Java', and replacing it with 'Python' results in "Python and Javascript with Python."
    public static string ReplaceExactWord(this string stringToSearch, string find, string replace)
        string pattern = @"\b" + find + @"\b";
        return Regex.Replace(stringToSearch, pattern, replace, RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);

    Regular Expression In Python - Simple Grouping

    This python code shows how to define a regular expression path and have it applied to some string. The regex is defined using the compile built-in method of re library. In the following example some groups are used to parse information from filename strings listed by 'ls' linux command. Exception will raise if no match will be found.
    import os, re
    # Assume to have some file names listed
    # The matching path is: <id>_<name>_<code>.txt
    # Define regex 
    my_regExp = re.compile(r'(?P<id>^[^_]*)_(?P<name>[^.]*)_(?P<code>[^.]*).txt')
    for myFile in os.popen('ls -F /some/path').readlines():
        id= ''
        name= ''
        code= ''
               id= my_regExp.match(myFile).group('id')
               msgErr='Error on id - ' + myFile
               name= my_regExp.match(myFile).group('name')
               msgErr='Error on name - ' + myFile
               code= my_regExp.match(myFile).group('code')
               msgErr='Error on code- ' + myFile
