This Demonstration shows fractal structures generated by regular expressions. Starting with the array , each integer is replaced by the array formed by prepending to the elements of ,



and the process repeats a number of steps. Then, the elements of the array are evaluated using a regular expression, and colored according to the number of digits that match the selected regular expression.
