REE - Regular Expression Engine Build Status

This is a toy project to get a better understanding of how regular expression engines work. REE can build parse trees and compile working NFA representations of (simple) regular expressions. This can be accessed via a simple public interface.

Usage Example

use feature 'say';
use REE;

# matching
my $ree     = REE->new(regex => '(foo|bar)*baz');
my $string  = "foobarbaz";
say "$string matches" if $ree->match($string);

# meta information
say 'canonical regex: ' . $ree->canonical_regex;
say 'NFA representation: ';
say $ree->nfa_representation;

Web Interface

There is a simple web interface for REE.
