    Regular Expression Crossword Puzzle



    Part of one of the MIT challenges, apparently. Ended up solving this last night. Pretty fun, if you like this sort of thing.

    Made one mistake at the very end, though - luckily, I made it late enough that it didn't drag me off-track for the rest of the solution.

    Regular expressions - it's a string of characters representing a 'search pattern'.
