Today’s FOSS OTD is oriented towards programmers who need a good way to test regular expressions. Check out The Regex Coach – interactive regular expressions. It updates in real time, as you edit a regex or its target text. Very, very cool. Not actually open source, but still very cool.
Okay, so I got behind on the FOSS OTD postings. Catching up:
- 10/19: PHP is a wonderful, fast, and flexible OSS scripting language for web programming and stand-alone applications.
- 10/20: FileZilla is a free FTP client. There is also a great FileZilla Server application.
- 10/21: PuTTY is a free telnet/SSH client. Very dependable and flexible.
- 10/22: Notepad++ is a free Windows Notepad replacement, which allows for tabbed editing, source formatting, and more.
- 10/23: MySQL 5.0 just reached production status – this is the world’s best database system. Check it out!
