The "regexp is no fun!" thread posted by Stefan Tiedje is a very useful thread an my thinking was that it would be very useful to combine this information into a max patch.
I'm still very much learning regexps myself so it would be difficult to include al the information with clear descriptions myself. Therefore I propose we put together, collectively, a max patch that could be included with max or placed in the share section or distributed in some way to people who are struggling with the regexp object.
I already threw together some examples (it's about lunchtime if that explains my examples!) which I hope are easy to understand. There's very little there so far but I will add some more.
If you can help then please contribute something to the patch and repost it on here! This way we can also check that nobody has written anything daft or that doesn't make sense which I certainly am prone to doing.
If you contribute something feel free to add your name to the contributors subpatch.
I hope you agree with me that this is a good idea!
