I am a beginner to C++, working on Win 7 x64. I've got myself set up with MinGW and Visual Studio 2010.
I would like to use PCRE for RegEx, but I have no idea how to install it to work with these two compilers. I tried to research this, but the people who write PCRE are upfront about knowing nothing about Windows, and so don't provide much assistance. And what little information I can find is clearly written for experienced programmers, and is not easily understood by someone new.
Is there anyone familiar with this who can help walk me through the process of setting up PCRE 8.12 with MinGW and Visual Studio?
Alternately, if a good guide exists, you can just point me in the right direction. But so far, I haven't been able to find anything appropriate.
