txt2re: Regular Expression Generator

txt2re is a great tool that can help you a lot when creating regular expressions. Just type in an example string you want to match, then use the selectors to create a snippet of code with the regex and validation process pre-populated, allowing you to drop the code straight into your application. This supports many languages including some of the following

  • perl
  • php
  • python
  • java
  • javascript
  • ruby
  • c#

I must give some credit to my colleague for his blog post and also the full credit to Zoe Nolan.
