I'd add "When A Regex Is Too Much", covering tr(), and "Other Places For a Regex" which would discuss split and grep.

I use those more than substitutions and matches in plenty of programs.

    I'm definitely going to cover tr/// in the "optimization" section, showing how to change something as silly-looking as s/[aeiou]//gi to the far more competant tr/aeiouAEIOU//d.

    Don't fear; I'll be discussing functions that are oft or best employed with regexes, especially split() and its magical first argument.
