kiki — tool for python regular expression testing




This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

A free environment for regular expression testing (ferret). It allowsyou to write regexes and test them against a sample text, providing extensive output about the results. It is useful for several purposes:

- exploring and understanding the structure of match objects generated by the re module, making Kiki a valuable tool for people new to regexes.

- testing regexes on sample text before deploying them in code.


This program does not take any command line options.
