RegexBuddy is your companion for working with regular expressions. Easily create regular expressions that match exactly what you want. Clearly understand complex regexes written by others. Use plain English building blocks instead of or in addition to the standard regex syntax. Quickly test any regular expression on sample strings and files, preventing mistakes on actual data. Debug without guesswork by stepping through the actual matching process.
The main design goal behind RegexBuddy is to make it easy to learn and work with the regular expression syntax. RegexBuddy makes no attempt to shield you from the complexities of regular expressions. Instead, it tries to make your life easier by clearly explaining and showing you how a regex works, or doesn’t. As such, RegexBuddy is primarily of interest to people who already know or who want to learn the ins and outs of regular expressions. Complete beginners can use RegexBuddy, but there will be a learning curve.
