A Regex challenge
« on: 04 Feb 2014, 11:36 »

Each clue on the grid represents a regular expression. The row of cells it points to must match this expression exactly, where it is read starting from where the clue is drawn. There is a unique way to fill in the whole grid.

There's a lot of .* there. Not very helpful. Tempted to see how much I can solve, there's some clear starting points, but it's going to get complicated fast.
