    Hello,

    Im analyzing some text by using regular expressions in Ruby. Im wondering if there are any tools to make the analyzing of text files more convenient.

    I ran across a program called RegExBuddy (http://www.regexbuddy.com/ruby.html), and now Im wondering if it is useful.

    Please, if you have any experience with regular expressions and Ruby, then do share them.

    Also, any advice is welcome.

    Is there a package for Ruby with useful code-snippets for working with regular expressions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've been successful using regex's with Ruby.

    Are you trying to get past a particular hump in their use or understanding their use?

    I've not used any additional packages on top of Ruby, just barebones "what comes with Ruby" stuff.
