Mac OS X Regex Widget Update 1.7

25 Jun 2008

(RegexWidget is a Mac OS X dashboard regular expression testing widget)

Another small update to the Regex Widget. A bug reported by Niels Castle led to a new feature and an, arguable, bug fix.

The new feature is Multiline support. When you tick the multiline check box it allows the "beginning of line" (^) and "end of line" ($) parts of a regex to work. See the screen shot for an example:

Regex17Update

The other bug fix / feature is: you can now leave off the start and end "/" when working a regular expression. So you can use either the form "/[0-3]+/" or just "[0-3]+" - both should behave the same.

You can download the new version from my widget page.
