    [ The following text is in the "ISO-8859-1" character set. ]
    [ Your display is set for the "US-ASCII" character set.  ]
    [ Some characters may be displayed incorrectly. ]

I have had a need to start making my own custom rules for SA. Seems like 
most people can already do this easily, but i kept making typos and 
having issues making them work without retrying a few times.

Does anyone use any kind of validator, other than thier live system or 
lint, to see if thier regexp are failing and if so where?

I found
this tool that does a fair job, but its not a linux shell tool and its 
almost too overwhelming.

Anyone got any ideas on a shell tool that can do a similar job?
