Regular expression reference for BBEdit
Authored by: lar3ry on Apr 19, '13 11:15:31AM
Since it's "Perl Compatible Regular Expressions," then you just need to type:

man perlre
in Terminal. In other words, a pretty good reference to Perl's regular expressions are already available on OS X. A cheat-sheet may be nice, but there are many subtleties with regard to regular expressions that it's often very useful to have a good reference whereas a short reference like that could just be confusing.

Regular expression reference for BBEdit

I prefer using the app "ManOpen" instead of a terminal window to read man pages, but otherwise - yeah, exactly this.

I've got nothing against a cheat sheet being available on the web... it's just that we've already got a good reference on our own computers.
