Can anyone recommend a web-based QRegExp testing site (for newbs)?
I did a Google search but didn't find anything newb friendly. The sites I did find, I tried using some of Sheldon's examples and they didn't play nice.
it's always hard to recommend some tool because it's quite often a matter of taste.
But you can try this f.e. http://www.perlfect.com/articles/regextutor.shtml.
Don't hesitate to ask if you face problems with your regex.
All I can recommend to you is a writing help. I think that it is useful for every person who studies at university or college.
