    Question Regular Expression Library

    Which regular expression libraries are available? Which would you consider the best? (for any platform)

    Well they should be portable to all platforms - or at least the POSIX platforms.

    The normal regex has it's own POSIX standard.
    Perl Compatible Regular Expressions (PCRE) are handy if you know Perl. It has more features than the more traditional regex library.

    For linux users, type
    man regex
    man pcre
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
