The bane of almost any website or command line scripting is regular expression matching.

I have used Regex Coach for many years with great benefit. http://www.weitz.de/regex-coach/

I have a site that requires UTF-8 encoding, and thus needed a new resource that supported it.

And that new resource is: https://regexr.com/

You can specify your options ("Flags") and it tells you match groups when you hover over the matched text. Note: Change the mode to PCRE for PHP-compatible regular expressions.

And there is lots of handy regex reference material on the menu at the left of the screen.

Enjoy!

pkSML,

Wonderful site and very nice features.

The major pain with URL rewriting is translating the idea in an expression with a weird syntax. So far there are very few alternatives to the PCRE syntax that could be easy, declarative and do functional.
