Annoyingly, my regex, even after all these years of web development, is still completely horrible – pretty much non-existent actually. Which is exactly why I always like to keep a handy regex pattern test tool on hand for the odd occasion when I do actually need to use the power of regular expressions.

Happily, Philip Bjorge saw fit to put together a cool little online PHP Regex test pad in the form of PHP Live Regex.

It’s simple to use, updates its regex results in realtime, and has a whole lot of helper text sitting at the bottom of the screen.

Quite a nice little implementation then in other words.
