Description

Regex Tuner is used to tune regexes applying to html pages. It can be used for any text files though.
This tool may be very avail in development of web crawler or data processor.
It allows building chain of regexes applied subsequently.
It has 2 windows: Browser and Source.
See tool tip messages in the application to clarify functionality of each control.


Browser window

Browser window displays input source text as a web page. It can be ignored if you want to parse of non-html source text.
You can select some text within web page in Browser window and then switch to Source window and see the respective html source selected there.
And vice versa, when you switch back to Browser window, you can see results of source text parsing, performed in Source window, highlighted in Browser window.


Source window

Source window displays source text that will be parsed.
You can create regex collection here to be applied to the source text and then see results of parsing labeled and highlighted. Regex collection is a chain of regexes that are processed subsequently so that match result of previous regex (exactly: specified group of previous regex) is used as an input string for next regex.
You can parse source text and then switch to Browser window and see results of parsing highlighted in Browser window.
During parsing a lebel is added to each match of regex groups. Label format is: [number of match]$[number of group].
To build regexes refer .NET documentation.
If you want to parse non-html text, you may use only Source window. In this case you may specify Source window as a start window in the .config file.


Settings

Colors and some other settings can be configured in the .config file.
