    A very broad question with no details. First step is to read the Datasheet and any Application Notes for the regulator you're considering. Almost always found through a simple Google search.

    Every regulator is different, so different regulators have different requirements!

    The requirements differ by the manufacturer or the type of regulator for example linear,switching.
