Official Mirror:
A free environment for regular expression testing (ferret). It allows you to write regexes and test them against a sample text, providing extensive output about the results. It is useful for several purposes: - exploring and understanding the structure of match objects generated by the re module, making Kiki a valuable tool for people new to regexes. - testing regexes on sample text before deploying them in code. Kiki can function on its own or as plugin for the Spe Python editor.
