All,

At one time, I saw a small utility that would take a regular expression as input and attempt to describe it in "Plain English".  I am unable to find that utility.  Has anyone seen anything like that?

There's also RegExBuddy (http://www.regexbuddy.com), a Windows utility, and a set of libraries (Perl I think, could be wrong) called YAPE::Regex::Explain.
