mruby-regexp-pcre

"mruby-regexp-pcre" is a regular expression module for mruby, based on PCRE. It provides Regexp and MatchData classes.

Requirements

none (libpcre is bundled).

Example

line = "#hoge"
/^#.*/ =~ line

csv = "a, b, c"
csv.split /,\s*/

kvs = "key: value"
m = /(\w+)\s*:\s*(\w*)/.match(kvs)
key, value = m[1], m[2]

Difference between PCRE and MRI Regexp

MRI (CRuby) PCRE
\h A hexdigit character ([0-9a-fA-F]) a horizontal white space character

Test

If you have mruby source code and imported mruby-regexp-pcre as an mrbgem, just run "rake test" to execute test scripts in test directory:

% cd mruby
% rake test

Or run run_test.rb to check out mruby source code into a temporary directory, and run tests on it:

% cd mruby-regexp-pcre
% ruby run_test.rb test
% rm -rf tmp

Alternatives

If mruby-regexp-pcre does not meet your requirements, try mruby-onig-regexp. It consumes much more memory but has better compatibility with MRI.

Other alternatives:

License

Note: If you build your mruby with bundled PCRE (default), read the pcre/LINCENCE file carefully.
