Some of you may recall that I promised to demo a GUI regex 
test thingy - as long as someone reminded me at the end.  
Well nobody reminded me did they :-)

I've attached a screenshot showing how you can put in some 
test data and a regular expression and the script will tell 
you if it matched and if so what matched.

You can download the script from here:


It requires the Tk gui modules.  I'm pretty sure that's 
included in the standard ActivePerl distribution for Windows.  
On my Debian Linux box I needed to do:

apt-get install perl-tk

No doubt other distributions have a similar package available.
