You might also find M-x re-builder RET to be helpful.

For added fun, type `C-h m' inside the re-builder buffer, but play with the 
builder first.

There are a few tricks that you just have to learn, with `C-q C-j' among the 
biggest.  This is such an old artifact of `unix versus dos versus mac' that 
most hackers are inured at this point.  (How old?  It can accurately be 
described as a `Multics versus TOPS-10 versus BBC Micro' problem.)

Hope that helps.
