The Regex Coach – interactive regular expressions

Now this looks like a nice utility! The The Regex Coach will help you see the effect of a proposed regex (Regular Expression) match using a perl compatible engine. I am going to give this a try. What do you use for this purpose? Leave a comment on what you use.

I have always struggled with formulating regex expressions. I get them in theory, I usually understand when I look at one someone else wrote, but when I need to draft one it is always a bit of guess work and fiddling. This will make that fiddling much faster, and the interactive explainations provided may in fact help me better understand the outcomes so I will fiddle less and less. I can hope can’t I?
