---------------- End original message. ---------------------

Learning regular expression construction is not an easy thing beyond 
the basic stuff.

A tool I use to help me interactively develop and test complex regex 
strings is the Rx toolkit in Active State's Komodo development 
environment (Komodo handles Perl, Python, PHP, Java and a few other languages).

You can try it free and a personal license is pretty cheap. 

I don't work for them, I just love the software because it has made 
my script programming a lot easier.
