in thread How will my regular expression match?

I use this a lot, usually with the shorter command-line invocation ('-Dr', available if perl was built with debugging enabled). However the output was designed primarily for internals debugging, and is likely to be more scary than helpful to the casual user.

Various people have taken advantage of the information it provides to offer a friendlier interface to regexp debugging. Though I haven't tried any of them, I'm aware of ReBug (I believe this is open source, but I can't get to the website: the author gave a talk on it at the 2001 OSCON), Komodo (commercial, with "try before you buy"), and The Regex Coach ("donationware", donate if you like it) which was recently mentioned on PM.

[Corion]: Yay. FF now has u2f built-in (behind an about:config setting), so using an USB token to sign in actually works :)
[Corion]: So, it's not all bad with the new FF :)
[holli]: 2factor is a bit too much for me. i just use passwords like jhbn8789q27312laks dmaw98^
[moritz]: isn't there also some about:config setting to enable the old plugin API?
[Discipulus]: indeed, only the logo is nicer
[Corion]: moritz: Hmm, I doubt so, as I think they moved away from XUL and other UI stuff, which was used by most plugins I used
[Corion]: holli: I'm trying it out with Github and so far I don't dislike it. It's basically like an extra key I press to log in, which is an OK flow for Github
[Corion]: I haven't tried out recovery in case of a broken USB key though (even though I have three such U2F tokens lying around here)
