Regular Expression Construction Jump to Story

Creating regular expressions by hand can often become unwieldy and a bit cryptic. The good news, though, is that Jim Weirich recently released a regular expression-building library for Ruby called "re." You can kind of think of re as a DSL for regular expressions, allowing you to build up your expression over multiple statements. This defines the regular expression in smaller, more manageable blocks, which should make their creation much simpler and more maintainable.
