More about The Regex Coach
Since the program joined our selection of programs and apps in 2006, it has obtained 12,360 installations, and last week it achieved 18 installations.
The Regex Coach is a light software that will require less storage space than many software in the section Development software. It's a program very heavily used in some countries such as Russian Federation, India, and France.
Its current version is 0.8.5 and its last update was on 10/11/2006. It's available for users with the operating system Windows 98 and previous versions, and it is available in English.
The Regex Coach is a graphical application for Linux and Windows which can be used to experiment with (Perl-compatible) regular expressions interactively. The application contains the following features:
It shows whether a regular expression matches a particular target string
It can also show which parts of the target string correspond to captured register groups or to arbitrary parts of the regular expression
It can "walk" through the target string one match at a time
It can simulate Perl's split and s/// (substitution) operators
It tries to describe the regular expression in plain English
It can show a graphical representation of the regular expression's parse tree
It can single-step through the matching process as performed by the regex engine
Everything happens in "real time", i.e. as soon as you make a change somewhere in the application all other parts are instantly updated
"A well-designed way to learn or improve what you 'know' about regex(p)"
Nicely done, IMHO. Helped me get back up to speed within a couple of days (I hadn't used regex and extensions since early Unix days). I hope to somehow repay its generous designed at some point.
