Woke up at 5am with the realization that I could use regular expressions to parse the string representation of regular expressions to build this program to parse regular expressions into more human-readable English.

I am so tired.

    I now have an irregular expression on my face.

    @Demolishun Irregular for a normal human or irregular for a programmer?

    @AmyShackles The bug wearing an Edgar suit and making a face while saying, "Is that better?!" comes to mind.

    Actually it was my normal WTF face when presented with a programming issue. So most likely my normal irregular programming expression.

    Please keep in mind that it’s not possible, to parse a regex using a regex.

    @dder Yeah, realized this earlier. Oh well, handling things piece by bloody piece is probably more testable and straightforward anyway.
