Oniguruma  ----   (C) K.Kosako <sndgk393 AT ybb DOT ne DOT jp>

Oniguruma is a regular expressions library.
The characteristics of this library is that different character encoding
for every regular expression object can be specified.

Supported character encodings:

  Shift_JIS, Big5, GB18030, KOI8-R, CP1251,
  ISO-8859-1, ISO-8859-2, ISO-8859-3, ISO-8859-4, ISO-8859-5,
  ISO-8859-6, ISO-8859-7, ISO-8859-8, ISO-8859-9, ISO-8859-10,
  ISO-8859-11, ISO-8859-13, ISO-8859-14, ISO-8859-15, ISO-8859-16

* GB18030: contributed by KUBO Takehiro
* CP1251:  contributed by Byte


   BSD license.


 Case 1: Unix and Cygwin platform

   1. ./configure
   2. make
   3. make install

   * uninstall

     make uninstall

   * test (ASCII/EUC-JP)

     make atest

   * configuration check

     onig-config --cflags
     onig-config --libs
     onig-config --prefix
     onig-config --exec-prefix

 Case 2: Win32 platform (VC++)

   1. copy win32\Makefile Makefile
   2. copy win32\config.h config.h
   3. nmake

      onig_s.lib:  static link library
      onig.dll:    dynamic link library

  * test (ASCII/Shift_JIS)
   4. copy win32\testc.c testc.c
   5. nmake ctest

Regular Expressions

  See doc/RE (or doc/RE.ja for Japanese).


  Include oniguruma.h in your program. (Oniguruma API)
  See doc/API for Oniguruma API.

  If you want to disable UChar type (== unsigned char) definition
  in oniguruma.h, define ONIG_ESCAPE_UCHAR_COLLISION and then 
  include oniguruma.h.

  If you want to disable regex_t type definition in oniguruma.h,
  define ONIG_ESCAPE_REGEX_T_COLLISION and then include oniguruma.h.

  Example of the compiling/linking command line in Unix or Cygwin,
  (prefix == /usr/local case)

    cc sample.c -L/usr/local/lib -lonig

  If you want to use static link library(onig_s.lib) in Win32,
  add option -DONIG_EXTERN=extern to C compiler.

Sample Programs

  sample/simple.c    example of the minimum (Oniguruma API)
  sample/names.c     example of the named group callback.
  sample/encode.c    example of some encodings.
  sample/listcap.c   example of the capture history.
  sample/posix.c     POSIX API sample.
  sample/sql.c       example of the variable meta characters.
                     (SQL-like pattern matching)

Test Programs
  sample/syntax.c    Perl, Java and ASIS syntax test.
  sample/crnl.c      --enable-crnl-as-line-terminator test

  ? case fold flag: Katakana <-> Hiragana.
 ?? \X (== \PM\pM*)
 ?? implement syntax behavior ONIG_SYN_CONTEXT_INDEP_ANCHORS.
 ?? transmission stopper. (return ONIG_STOP from match_at())

and I'm thankful to Akinori MUSHA.
