Source code for regex generator is now public

posted Apr 28, 2015, 8:18 AM by Alberto Bartoli
We have received several requests to make the source code for our regex generator by examples tool public.

We were reluctant to do so because we cannot offer any support, but eventually we decided to make it public:

Enjoy it!

The engine is a developement release that implements the algorithms published in our articles:
  • Bartoli, Davanzo, De Lorenzo, Medvet, Automatic Synthesis of Regular Expressions from Examples, IEEE Computer, 2014
  • Bartoli, De Lorenzo, Medvet, Tarlao, Learning Text Patterns using Separate-and-Conquer Genetic Programming, 18th European Conference on Genetic Programming (EuroGP), 2015, Copenhagen (Denmark)
More details about the project can be found on

We hope that you find this code instructive and useful for your research or study activity.

If you use our code in your reasearch please cite our work and please share back your enhancements, fixes and modifications.
