Great tool

I've tried quite a few standalone regex search and replace tools but haven't found any I like more than this one. The main plus is that it uses PCRE syntax (yay!) which, I find is easier, more powerful, more featured than other syntaxes. (Several other tools use .NET's built-in regex syntax, which is not great.) It also has a couple of bonus variables that you can use in the replacement string. You can use it to search only. This is really useful if you want to test that your replacement string will behave as expected by copying one or more of the strings from the search results into the Test regex box.
