Regular Expression Library

Digital Media Minute just posted a link to the Regular Expression Library which is a repository of Regular Expression expressions (currently with over 450 entries).

This is a useful resource if your are developing applications for Central, as Central has built in support for regular expressions. Of course, it is also useful if you are using one of the community developed Flash regular expression libraries.

You can view the website here.

You can find some more information on Regular Expressions in Central here and here.

Btw, we will be posting an extensive article on using Regular Expressions in Central on the DevNet center very soon.

    This is offtopic, but if you do a search on google for “installer.swf”, then quite a few Central applications show up. There is even an Adult preview site!Cheers

    Unfortunately the open regular expression peices for Flash are all under the AS 1 model. They don’t work in AS 2.0. Some people have started the conversions, but nobody has one available yet.

    Sorry it is out of the topic but making a post the Dec 31st…tss tss… common Mark… you work too much, take a break.Happy New Year 🙂

  4. Yeah, Bradley,I know the rant and I feel partly responsible for that. Thing is I am fighting with other projects and just don’t have time for creating a decent update to the lib. Actually I tried to contact Lucian Beebe from MM Flash team regarding creating this Regex lib a MM-supported project with a benefit that when it’s taken under the MM’s hood, there may be better developer acception rate, but somehow I fail to get any response from him. Mike, maybe you can step in and give some update?

    I’m glad to hear that — I know I’ve talked with a few people on the regular expression pieces. I would love to see a DRK release with that (hint hint!). Unfortunately we need this for our app, like yesterday.

  6. Just wanted to thank you guys for getting such an informative site. Your site is indeed a wonderful and i bookmarked it. I have found some of the information here helpful. I have closed more time explained around me with the contents of your home page from each other now. Unfortunately, there are little good sites. Your site is very good. Thank you for the opportunity to sign your guest book. I found it very interesting to read other peoples comments about your site

    Working with regular expression combining PHP has proven to be a very strong tool for developing serious Flash based application!http://flashaddict.mindsay.com
