  abstract =     "Search-and-replace is a text processing task which may
                 be largely automated with regular expressions: the user
                 must describe with a specific formal language the
                 regions to be modified (search pattern) and the
                 corresponding desired changes (replacement expression).
                 Writing and tuning the required expressions requires
                 high familiarity with the corresponding formalism and
                 is typically a lengthy, error-prone process.

                 In this paper we propose a tool based on Genetic
                 Programming (GP) for generating automatically both the
                 search pattern and the replacement expression based
                 only on examples. The user merely provides examples of
                 the input text along with the desired output text and
                 does not need any knowledge about the regular
                 expression formalism nor about GP. We are not aware of
                 any similar proposal. We experimentally evaluated our
                 proposal on 4 different search-and-replace tasks
                 operating on real-world datasets and found good
                 results, which suggests that the approach may indeed be
                 practically viable.",
