I have yet another O’Reilly book on the bookshelf, this is the Mighty Mastering Regular Expressions. I have yet to be a Master, as I find reading books an unnatural activity (how 21st century).

As a front-end crayon, my programming kung fu is weak, and I look to Charles Atlas and O’Reilly to beef up my puny muscles. Regular expressions I find particularly useful to chomp through vast swathes of HTML, and particularly painful as my brain is flimsily adapted to remembering arcane incantations.

So when a co-coder recommended regexpal, I felt a tingle of relief – now I can test my regular expressions interactively!! And not have sand kicked in my intellectual face!
