Regular expression tester

Posted by onlydarksets on August 25, 2008

Regular expressions are the bain of my existence when it comes to DTb.  This isn’t because of any particular failing in DTb – Andy has made it extremely flexible by allowing regex.  Mostly it’s because I don’t have a lot of experience with using them (beyond the occasional search in TextPad), and I didn’t have a way to easily test and troubleshoot them.

Well, gskinner to the rescue with a web app for this (Flash required).  There’s also a desktop version (Adobe Air required).

There is also a good guide from Jan Goyvaerts.
