Actually, if you are going to look to Visual (perl/Tk) regex tweaking utility for bits to copy, look at the (github) Visual Regex Explorer. (Also written by me... :-) )

It's basically the same program extended to be a little more robust and a lot more capable.

    Your Visual Regex Explorer link says:
    Uses YAPE::Regex::Explain to give detailed explanations of what any valid regex. (As long as it doesn't use any of the extensions added in perl 5.12 or later. That's a limitation of Y::R::E. If it gets updated, then so will VRegExp.)

    YAPE::Regex::Explain says:

    There is no support for regular expression syntax added after Perl version 5.6, particularly any constructs added in 5.10.

      Ermm... so it does. Either a reading fail on my part, or an unnoticed typo. I'll change the readme. Thanks.
