Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So every now and again I run into RegEx's. I have no real need to learn them, except a compulsion to continue understanding the "in" things in computers, but I have discovered that they are fantastic when you need to do large scale transforms of structured text.
The problem is, I have no editor which makes this process easy. My current favorite website is this one (RegExr) which has an excellent quick reference and shows me in real time what I'm writing, so I can figure things out. It's how I've been learning so far, and I also use it for practical tasks.
Is there any free software though which will let me do something similar locally though? I'd kind of like not to be dependent on a website's continued existence to process text/test out regex's, and unfortunately, Notepad++'s support is pretty poor.
Cancer is when cells stop letting the body mooch off their hard work - clearly a community of like-minded cells should isolate themselves and do the best job each can do, even if the rest of the body collapses!
