Results can be copied to Perl, PHP, Ruby
MacTechnologies has introduced RegExRX 1.0, a developer tool for producing regular expressions. The program is based on the PCRE library and is said to produce patterns which can be quickly copied into Perl, Ruby, PHP, AppleScript and REALbasic. Users can perform live matching and replacing, and view a match list that shows all results, including subexpressions.
An unlimited number of windows is supported, and each panel can be resized at will. The interface also indicates stats on source and replacement text, and links the two elements with the Match List when scrolling. Expressions can be saved as documents for later return.
RegExRX costs $20, and is available in Intel and PowerPC versions. Either demands Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
