C++ Regex Engine

C++ Regex Engine provides a robust regular expression library for use in C++. The syntax of the regular expression language is very close to the Perl 5 standard. The classes given somewhat mirror those found in Java's regular expression library, but have several improvements. The intended audience of this package is anyone who does a lot of data parsing (e.g. sysadmins), people tired of trying to decipher Perl scripts, and regular expression beginners who know C++. Some knowledge of the STL's vector and string will come in handy, but isn't necessary.

Recent releases

    Release Notes: This release fixes a bug wherein case insensitive, negative class matches gave erroneous results.

    •  24 Nov 2007 23:24

      Release Notes: There was a large problem wherein non-possessive quantifiers within an OR were not backing-off or consuming properly. This has been fixed. For the time being, Unicode is no longer "officially" supported. All bugfixes are still being merged into the Unicode files, but not all Unicode functionality has been properly tested.

        Release Notes: Unicode regular expressions and text now compile and run on apple-gcc.

        •  24 Mar 2006 02:40

          Release Notes: This release adds the ability to change matching flags in certain parts of the regex by means of (?imsd-imsd:X). The i, m, s, and d options are the same as those in the java.util.regex package.
