You’d think that the regex.info site only has information on Jeffrey Friedl’s Mastering Regular Expressions (a great book on RegEx programming) MRE2 Errata, MRE3 Errata and Where to get egrep (agrep and sourcecode/binary builds).
Not so (:
It also hosts a few other things, mostly having to do with imagery or photography:

Every time I use regular expressions (or post about them), it makes me think about the classic RegEx post by Jeff Atwood: to compile or not to compile.
BTW: Happy 2013!

Though the sample question is in C#, it applies to almost any language and framework: for relatively simple checks like IsHex(), you can go the RegEx way, or the compound if-statement way.
Which kind of function do you like most?
I’m not only interested in the percentages, so let me know in the comments why.
PS: if you want to use RegEx in .NET, you can compile them to IL, but be very cautious for the compilation overhead.
