Great RegEx Test Utility…

Nithy recently pointed me at a great interactive tool for testing and debugging Regular Expressions. Its called “RegEx Coach” (screenshot shown below). I find it very helpful because it lets you put sample text in the bottom pane, and then as you type the regex in the top pane, it highlights what portion of the sample text is matched so far. Thus far its proven very useful 🙂
