Regex is Hard

Regex is both terrible to write and hard to understand. We use it because of its ability to describe complex patterns beautifully. This site uses GPT-3 to generate regular expressions from English, and can even (sometimes) describe a regular expression in plain English.

Special thanks to Conrad Irwin and Superhuman for giving me permission to use regex.rip to check generated regex for exponential backtracking issues.
