README for guile-pcre --------------------- guile-pcre is a set of language bindings to provide guile programs with access to pcre (Perl-compatible regular expression library). VERSION ------- This is verion 1.0 of guile-pcre. COMPATIBILITY ------------- This verion of guile-pcre has been tested with guile 2.1 and pcre 8.32. LIMITATIONS ----------- No attempt has been made to support pcre external tables (locale overrides), external patterns, reference counting, or the alternative matcher. As such there's no support for: - pcre_maketables - pcre_config flags PCRE_INFO_DEFAULT_TABLES, PCRE_INFO_FIRSTTABLE, or PCRE_INFO_NAMETABLE. - pcre_pattern_to_host_byte_order - pcre_refcount - pcre_dfa_exec Partial matching should be supported later. API --- The API is described in the guile-pcre.info file in the doc directory. Or use "make html" and point your browser to doc/guile-pcre.html/index.html. LICENSE ------- Part of the motivation for this work was an apparent absense of similar functionality elsewhere. It looks like Rob Browning started down this path is 2002 bug got bogged down in license incompatibility. It still isn't clear that Rob Browning could have released what he had done, but pcre is now listed in the FSF free software directory http://directory.fsf.org/wiki/PCRE. So it seems safe, now, to use pcre from guile programs. GPL Version 3 was selected because guile is licensed under LICENSE. Since guile-pcre is fully dependent on guile, there seems no need for an alternate license. In the event that license incompatability becomes an issue, the author
