Week 2: Regex & Tribbles

For my first adventure into the world of regular expressions, I made a few interpretations of the “Trouble with Tribbles” script from the original Star Trek television show. The source code can be found here. I looked for tribbles, stage directions, questions, and exclamations. This is one of my favorite results:

UHURA: (coldly)

JONES: (entering)

KIRK: (shows Chekov the packet of wheat)

SPOCK: (stroking a tribble)

BARMAN: (starts producing tribbles from all over the place and putting them on the bar)

SCOTT: (big grin)

MCCOY: (scanning him)

KIRK: (shouting)

KIRK: (a whisper)

More results:
one word stage directions
all stage directions
names with stage directions
tribbles in stage directions
one word questions
questions and exclamations
