Redet also known as Regular Expression Development and Execution Tool is a tool for developing and executing regular expressions using any of more than 20 search programs, editors, and programming languages.
For each program in each locale a palette showing the available regular expression constructs is provided. The features of each program are determined by running a test suite, which guarantees that they will be correct for the particular program version in use and for the user's locale.
The locale may be changed without exiting Redet. Selections from the palette may be copied to the regular expression window with a mouse click. Definitions can be added to the palette via an initialization file.
The regular expressions executed are recorded in a history list, from which entries may be copied to the regular expression window with a mouse click. This allows complex regular expressions to be developed in pieces.
When a suitable regular expression has been constructed it may be saved to a file. Named character classes may be defined in a file or entered interactively. As long as the underlying program supports Unicode, Redet fully supports UTF-8 Unicode.
What's New in This Release:
A command-line flag that lists the supported programs and indicates which are available was added.
The Makefile now contains a target for installation under Mac OS X.
The accented letter entry widget was improved.
A number of characters were added, and upper-case counterparts are now available by right-clicking.
The number of columns in the chart is now configurable from the init file.
