Easy Match

http://www.mikekohn.net/software/easy_match.php

Library for doing for simple text searches similar to REGEX but with simpler syntax. To maximize performance, a JIT compiler turns matching commands into assembly for x86_64, x86, and ARM (tested on Raspberry Pi with both Linux and Windows 10 IoT). Easy Match will use syntax such as the following:

(starts_with('asdf') or starts_with('1111')) and ends_with('7890')

Search Keywords are:

  • starts_with()
  • ends_with()
  • match_at()
  • equals()
  • contains()

Other keywords:

  • and
  • or
  • not

Using a library is as simple as:

match_t match;

match = compiler_generate("starts_with('asdf') or ends_with('1111')");

if (match("asdf blah") == 1) { printf("Matches\n"); }

Current speed comparison examples when running against the entire src/generate_x86_64.c file on the x86_64 platform where the JIT is also turned on for PCRE:

[ starts_with('int ') ^int ]
