Tribute to regex

Today I was working with Regular Expressions and suddenly come into my mind the question:

How such a great invention as Regex was created?

I rapidly checked it and I get to the wikipedia page. I had no idea about who created such a good idea. Stephen Kleen owe our admiration, he was a complete person who, in my opinion, has helped the humanity to advance. Thanks man!

Stephen Cole Kleene, creator of the regular expressions

I want youngsters like me to change the way they see what they are working with. They are so focused on their own cutting-edge projects that looking back seems like a waste of time. But is not.
