Tools for creating Regular Expressions in C#

From time to time, I have to use Regular Expressions in my C# development and I have to admit that I am by no means a "Regular Expression Expert".

Therefore, like many other developers, I have to rely on 3rd party tools to help me develop my Regular Expressions.

The 3 tools that I use most heavily when developing and testing my Regular Expressions are the following:

  1. Expresso:
  2. RegexMagic:
  3. RegexBuddy:

Of all the 3 tools, I use Expresso the most heavily since it is an excellent tool for designing Regular Expressions. 

RegexMagic is not nearly as intuitive and easy-to-use as Expresso, but provides the added benefit of providing sample C# code for you to use in your C# application:

Finally, RegexBuddy combines some of the features from Expresso as well as RegexMagic to also provide assistance with generating Regular Expressions to use in your C# application:

Hopefully these tools will help you develop Regular Expressions as part of your C# development as well!!
