Tool for constructing and executing regular expressions

Redet (Regular Expression Development and Execution Tool) lets users construct regular expressions and test them against input data by executing any of various search programs, editors, and programming languages that use regular expressions. Suitable regular expressions can be saved to a file. The program currently supports over 50 different programs/editors/languages. A palette showing the available regular expression syntax is available for each program; users can copy selections from the palette to the regular expression window, and add definitions to the palette via an initialization file. As long as the underlying program supports Unicode, UTF-8 Unicode is allowed in both test data and regular expressions.
