I propose that we merge & with

1 Answer 1


Regex seems like the far more commonly used tag (142 questions, vs. 1 of regular-expressions). Most people say "regex", so personally I think the other two should be merged with regex. If anyone has any comments on this, let me know, otherwise I'll perform the merge later today.

  • I have no strong feelings one way or the other.

    If someone enters regex it'd automatically change to regular-expressions, right? I'd vote for the longer variant, as it's the "canonical" name. That's what we did for many of the product name tags, using microsoft-foo instead of ms-foo etc.

  • I merged into [regex] and created a synonym for [regular-expressions] .. I think [regexp] is so similar it's not worth creating a synonym over. Jun 25, 2011 at 19:01
