What is it all about?
SLRE is an ISO C library that implements a subset of Perl regular expression syntax.
• Written in strict ANSI C'89 • Small size (compiled x86 code is about 5kB) • Uses little stack and does no dynamic memory allocation • Provides simple intuitive API • Implements most useful subset of Perl regex syntax (see below) • Easily extensible. E.g. if one wants to introduce a new metacharacter \i , meaning "IPv4 address", it is easy to do so with SLRE.
