Bindings for re2 for Rust
#Installing dependencies Requires re2 and cre2.
cd deps && ./install_re2.sh && ./install_cre2.sh && cd ..
cd lib && make && cd ..
rustc -L ../path/to/rust-re2/lib my_program.rs
It might be helpful to move the compiled lib to
/usr/local/lib and link from
there. I should add a
make install target.
let text = ~"hello world 42!"; let pattern = ~"(world), ([0-9]+)"; let mut matches: ~[~str] = re2::Matches::new(2u32); re2::easy_match(pattern, text, matches); matches; // ~"world 42" matches; // ~"world" matches; // ~"42"
u32 passed to
re2::Matches::new represents the number of groupings plus
one. Matches is always one more than the
number of groupings, as matches is always the "full match". The function
0i32 in the case of no match,
1i32 in the case of a match,
2i32 if the pattern is invalid.
This binding is incomplete, but has the basics working. For more functions, see test/test.rs.
