Years back, builder.com used to have web interface to generate regular expression.
It was fine for simple expressions, but it wasn't good for complex expressions or optimized expression. In past I designed something similar using a design similar to outlook's rule wizard. Unless the target user is a programmer or someone who knows regular expression well (which has bit of learning curve), search engine user interface modle might be also an idea (something similar to boolean search or even natural language query), just a thought.

hey ji kim,

i'm new to this too - well i took a look at different REGEXP generator and
they are pretty complex ; well as u said it - its designed for the guys who
can make some kinda sense out of it; the target users for my project are
system admin guys.

well i was thinking of makng the application a lil' more simpler .... we
build a preset expression library! well with all the possible combinations:
well i got my hands on such a library and then an option to have a user
driven generator: (some thing a little simple); what do u think about this -

I'm working on this right now - will share the UI when i have some
conciderable amount of work done ...

Hey thanks a million; i wanted to share this with somebody and needed some
feedback on what i thought....

Jerry
