I’m a massive fan of regular expressions. The only problem I have with them is that I don’t use them often enough and forget how to use them most efficiently!
The best free tool I have used is Eric Gunnerson’s Regular Expression Workbench V2.0. I tried installing it on a Vista machine the other day and it wouldn’t install because the machine didn’t have .net 1.1. I didn’t want to install this, so the only other option was to convert it to a .net 2.0 app. Conversion is not very pretty exercise for winform apps and I decided to write an app from the ground up to mimic the parts of REW2 that I most use…
…and here is the result: [UPDATE: V1 is available. See this post.]
Please feel free to try it out and send me any bugs that you may find…FTD
