I need to learn more about "Regular Expressions" in a batch file.

Here is an example from "Qlemo".

QUESTION:
Please provide URL of any educational material that will teach me on using "regular expressions" in a batch file, or any quick fix for my knowledge bug.

Thanks for your help,
Rene

help %C | find /i "%~1" >nul && (
   echo,
