wow. I'd spend all my votes to upvote this for a week if I could.
I've always thought of regexes as a sort of black art (and still do to a certain degree), and I've always wanted something that would just explain in plain english what the heck a regex means when you read it. This could be my ticket (and possibly MANY others as well) to finally get a grip on regexes.


Very funny Scotty... Now PLEASE beam down my PANTS!

    Have you considered reading the O'Reilly Press book "Mastering Regular Expressions" by Jeffrey E. F. Friedl? The first few chapters explain in detail how to read regexes, step by step.
