Online Regular Expression Pattern Builder
Posts: n/a
I put together a quick, free tool for building PERL regular expressions
and validating it against some sample text.

It says that is for building PHP regular expressions.

Which is it?

perldoc -q "perl.*Perl"

What's the difference between "perl" and "Perl"?

One bit. Oh, you weren't talking ASCII? Larry now uses "Perl" to
signify the language proper and "perl" the implementation of it, i.e.
the current interpreter. Hence Tom's quip that "Nothing but perl can
parse Perl." You may or may not choose to follow this usage. For
example, parallelism means "awk and perl" and "Python and Perl" look
OK, while "awk and Perl" and "Python and perl" do not. But never write
"PERL", because perl is not an acronym, apocryphal folklore and post-
facto expansions notwithstanding.
