Installing this plugin

This plugin is not shipped in any distribution. You must manually install it on an EasyEclipse distribution. No other installation will be needed, because this plugin has no dependencies.

Getting started

Help is available for this plugin, in the Help > Help Contents menu in EasyEclipse.

In the QuickREx view (opened by selecting Window > Show View > Others..., then QuickREx > QuickREx), you can enter test-texts and try regular expressions. The expressions are evaluated against the test-text on the fly, matches are highlighted and you can navigate between the matches. You can also navigate through groups within each match (if groups are defined in your regular expression).

A very complete set of flags and options can modify the regex processing.

A small libraries of regular expression for a variety of tasks is included, in the Reg. Exp. Library view.

Hi Bastian,

I’ve just tried to add the QuickRex plugin into a stock Eclipse installation and was wondering if you are aware that the previous update site at http://www.bastian-bergerhoff.com/eclipse/features is no longer active.

Was this intended, if so how else can I still install the plugin or is the manual way the only way to do it going forward.

Kind regards

BTW. Great plugin, I use it quite regularly.
