Says dze27:
I was thinking it would be even better (feeping creaturism, here we go) if you could have a list of strings to be matched. So instead of entering just one, you could enter N strings, maybe 1 per line, and watch the regexp match them at the same time.
I agree, and this idea appears in my original notes for the regex debugger. I will be releasing the code for the back-end after I give my talk about it at TPC5, and I hope the result will be that several people implement free regex debuggers and that at least one of them has this feature.

The paper is online, should you want to read it.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
