Creating regular expressions can sometimes be a frustrating experience. Generally I find using regular expressions intuitive and easy, with quick and powerful results. However every now and then you stumble into a regular expression scenario that you just can’t seem to crack.
When this happens you might find yourself trying and trying different regular expressions and then echoing out the results and trying to figure out what is going wrong.
At times like this, a regular expression testing tool is invaluable. If like me though you don’t really like to shell out on something that you are probably hardly ever going to use then this online regular expression tester is great.
Thanks goes out to these guys for hosting such a simple but eminently useful little tool
