Finally one question: Basically, how can I test a regular expression

Er, write a recipe and pipe a message which should, or should not match the

See my .sig - I have a downloadable "sandbox" that you can plant recipes
into to test them. Though of course, one can just write the recipes
directly, the sandbox provides for handling forward operator, and some
other matters - ultimatley the idea is to have an environment in which you
don't need to change anything about your individual recipe to move it
between a production and testing config (unlike some peoples' tests where
they mangle the recipe itself, which it the CAUSE of their problems).
