regexr: Readable Regular Expressions

An R framework for constructing and managing human readable regular expressions. It aims to provide tools that enable the user to write regular expressions in a way that is similar to the ways R code is written. The tools allow the user to (1) write in smaller, modular, named, sub-expressions, (2) write top to bottom, rather than a single string (3) comment individual chunks, (4) indent expressions to clearly present regular expression groups, (5) add vertical line spaces and R comments (i.e., #), and (6) test the validity of the concatenated expression and the modular sub-expressions.
