[prMac.com] Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom - Independent developer Christopher Hannah is proud to announce the release of Pretty Regular Expressions 1.0 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The lets users create and test regular expressions, which they can then fine tune with multiple options. It features a simple design, which two themes, minimal distraction, and well enough room for any type of pattern matching scenario.
It was made with developers and programmers in mind, that use regular expressions often. A lot of the time when working with regular expressions, the process in which you design the pattern, it is hard to visualise the results. With this app, users can not only tune the pattern matching engine to the best fit, but they also see what text is matched, and it makes it very easy to use and understand the results.
In Pretty Regular Expressions, users can make use of # comments, so when they are writing a more complex pattern, they can make it easier to understand. This is an option available in the settings. There's also a strikethrough option, which users can enable, which displays all non-matching text with a strikethrough. It seems like a simple feature, but the visual difference it makes is huge.
The other options in the app are:
* Case Insensitive - Match letters in the pattern independent of case.
* Ignore Meta Characters - Treat the entire pattern text as a literal string.
* Anchors Match Lines - Allow ^ and $ to match the start and end of lines.
As this app was initially built for iOS, the developer made sure that the main features that more pro/power user would use, would be integrated from the beginning. This means that the app is fully supports multitasking, Split View, and also most orientations.
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 10.2 or later
* Universal Application
* 14.3 MB
