Regex Coach

| 1 min read

This is the first really cool thing from Kenneth Hunt's Tech Observer. I need to read his blog regularly. He points to a Regular Expression helper app. It's homepage is here. I have just played with it for 5 minutes and this will now be a permanent part of my development toolkit. Rather than fart around for 30 minutes figuring out why my regex didn't match like I thought it should, I'll just paste all this stuff into the Regex Coach GUI and have it explain it to me. Under one of the tabs is even the syntax tree of which portions matched which part of the regex. Cool!
