As we all know RegExs can get very cryptic.  Java I believe supports free spacing and comments that could make these easier to write.Check out the URL explains that you can have line breaks in your regExs that make it easier to write out and like Python you can have a # comment at the end of those lines. Imagine a CFRegEx tag that works like CFQUERY so you would have code like<CFREGEX>the  # sentence begins with the(cat|dog|fish) # followed by cat, dog, or fish.</CFREGEX>Obviously over simplified and you might need some tags for replace, etc, but this could make writing powerful RegEx fieel more like a regular script/query/etc.


Support for RegEx free spacing and comments.
