Software: Regulator Regular Expression Editor

Regulator is a nifty regular expression (RE) editor written for the .Net environment. With this tool, you can create and edit REs, test them against sample input and get tooltips as you edit your REs. I found the user interface a little unintuitive initially (the input and output panes should be swapped) but I got used to it after reading the quick start in the online help. Some other features: describing your REs in English and generating VB.Net and C# source code from your REs.
