    I just read a brief tutorial on regex because I need to match hyperlinks for a program I am writing.

    I basically need to match any hyperlink, with any protocol. I've used http://gskinner.com/RegExr/ to play around, and this is what I've come up with:
    Code:
    [A-Za-z0-9]+://[A-Za-z0-9./?=+%;&-]*
    I've made sure that it matches special characters inside links as well. But I just want to post it here to see if anyone has something to add, like a quicker way to match any special character.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and I suppose to turn a plain text url into a hyperlink I'd use this:
    Code:
    <a href="$&">$&</a>
