The pattern follows the re2 syntax (https://github.com/google/re2/wiki/Syntax)


  • input: A Tensor of type string. A string tensor of the text to be processed.
  • pattern: A Tensor of type string. A scalar string tensor containing the regular expression to match the input.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).
