Padre::Wx::Dialog::RegexEditor - dialog to make it easy to create a regular expression


The Regex Editor provides an interface to easily create regular expressions used in Perl.

The user can insert a regular expression (the surrounding / characters are not needed) and a text. The Regex Editor will automatically display the matching text in the bottom right window.

At the top of the window the user can select any of the four regular expression modifiers:

Ignore case (i)
Single-line (s)
Multi-line (m)
Extended (x)

Global match

Allow the change/replacement of the // around the regular expression

Highlight the match in the source text instead of in a separate window

Display the captured groups in a tree hierarchy similar to Rx ?

  Group                  Span (character) Value
  Match 0 (Group 0)      4-7              the actual match

Display the various Perl variable containing the relevant values e.g. the @- and @+ arrays, the %+ hash $1, $2...

point out what to use instead of $@ and $' and $`
