TCL/HSRE RegEx in Java


This repository contains a port of the TCL Regular Expression (TCLRE) library to Java. The TCL Regular Expression library was derived from the Henry Spencer regular expression library.

TCLRE combines a rich, extended, regular expression language with bounded runtime. The bounded runtime is the most important advantage over the regular expression classes provided in Java, which can run indefinitely.
