My Favorite Regular Expression Quick Reference

I find This site incredibly useful when working on complex regular expressions (or simple ones doing something I’m not familiar with).

In connection with Notepad++, I frequently use simple regular expressions for converting between Sanction and Trial Director file formats, and for creating clip import-files quickly/converting files provided by other people to be in the format ppp:ll-ppp:ll. Going from a format suck as that, to a fully formatted clip list in Sanction takes a matter of seconds, and getting there from an arbitrarily formatted list is fairly quick too.

Additionally, regular expressions are useful for editing out parts of ASCII depositions (such as time-of-day stamps, or duration lengths from exported designations).
