Implementation of Ruby strscan module

This gems implements the StringScanner class from the strscan.rb Ruby standard library for use with RubyMotion.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'motion-strscan'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install motion-strscan

Edit the Rakefile of your RubyMotion project and add the following require line

require 'motion-strscan'

Implementation details

This is a pure Ruby implementation of StringScanner (no Cocoa apis), borrowed from the MacRuby project, with some minor modifications to handle multibyte strings correctly.

Note: While Ruby uses the Oniguruma regular expression library, RubyMotion uses the ICU library on iOS/OSX, and the Java library on Andriod. There are minor differences, particularly in the handling of ^

For example, ICU will match a ^ only at the beginning of the input, unless you add the m flag; then it will match the beginning of the line as well. In Oniguruma, ^ matches the beginning of the line by default.

So if you're porting a Ruby libary that uses regular expressions, you need to be aware of these differences.

Supported Platforms

Bot iOS and OS X are supported targets. Will accept contibutions for Andriod support
