Regex Util

Posted by Chandan B Kumar on May 7, 2008

I wanted to include a section on our project wiki with JadClipse installation. During the writeup, I hit upon this plugin Regex Util. I felt this could be very useful to me. With 9/10 rating, I could not resist from giving a shot. What follows, are the effects of this accident.

The installation was very simple. I just dropped the jar into the plugins folder, restarted eclipse and was all set. I opened the Regex Util view and started writing few REs. I was so amazed at how fast I could write an RE. It has an elegant tooltip feature that displays what the character(s) mean(s), when you hover over the parts of the RE. It will also evaluate and highlight the matching text as you type. Isn’t it awesome? Whether you are newbie or a pro to REs, this plugin is simply indispensable.
