OG, as a follow up I spent a bit of time this evening using Expresso and I'm very impressed. Another tool I also use is RegexBuilder[^] (by Matt Jacobsen and Markus Renschler). While it's not a regex designer like Expresso it is an excellent parser-cum-tester.

You paste in or edit a regex string and you can create from 2 - 15 text lines. For example, I might create multiple lines showing variations of input text to be inspected. The moment you change the text or the regex you get an immediate colour change of the success or failure of the validation status on a particular line of sample text. That's useful if you are interested in specific strings. It's free which is nice.

I have a paid-for utility as well. So the three complement each other. For designing expressions, Expresso will be my striker, RegexBuddy my midfielder and RegexBuilder in defence.
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
