simple tool for running a regex on a bunch of lines

I used to be more reliant on my text editor's macro abilities...

I realized in some cases it would be easier to use regular expressions so I made a tool to apply the same reg ex to a bunch of lines of text: regexcellent

You can see some similar tools at Most of them are really old and perl cgi based. The one I use most often is tabtransform, that takes the tab delimited data I copy and paste from iTunes and puts it in a template for my monthly music playlist rundowns (I dig up the youtube URLs for each video and slap 'em in the links the script makes)
