13.2.45  regex

The standard library regex package implements Perl-style regular expression matching over strings.

This is the library-standard regular expression style. For example, the default binding of the =~ infix operator in src/app/makelib/main/makelib-g.pkg is taken from the regex package.

The regex package implements the Regular_Expression_Matcher API.

The regex package source code is in src/lib/regex/regex.pkg. It simply invokes regular_expression_matcher_g from src/lib/regex/glue/regular-expression-matcher-g.pkg.
