CL-PPCRE is a portable regular expression library for Common Lisp which has the following features:
- It is compatible with Perl (especially when used in conjunction with cl-interpol, to allow compatible parsing of regexp strings).
- It is pretty fast.
- It is portable between ANSI-compliant Common Lisp implementations.
- It is thread-safe.
- In addition to specifying regular expressions as strings like in Perl you can also use S-expressions.
- It comes with a BSD-style license so you can basically do with it whatever you want.
