Information

PackageBetterRegExp
Description Utility wrapper over RegExp
Node Version >= 0.4

Usage

Constructor

BetterRegExp = require "BetterRegExp"

# Create from RegExp
pat = BetterRegExp /^\s*\d+\s*$/gi
pat = BetterRegExp /^\s*\d+\s*$/
pat = BetterRegExp /^\s*\d+\s*$/, "gi"

# Create from String
pat = BetterRegExp "^\s*\d+\s*$", "gi"
pat = BetterRegExp "^\s*\d+\s*$""

Flags

pat = BetterRegExp /^\s*\d+\s*$/g

pat.addFlag('i') # Adding flags
pat.removeFlag('g') # Removing flags
pat.flags === 'i' # List flags
pat.addFlag('gm').removeFlag('i') # Chaining

# There are aliases to help make chaining easier
pat.g() = pat.addFlag('g')
pat.i() = pat.addFlag('i')
pat.m() = pat.addFlag('m')
pat.y() = pat.addFlag('y')
pat.x() = pat.addFlag('x')
pat.g().i() = pat.addFlag('gi')
pat.i().m().x() = pat.addFlag('imx')

Misc.

# Escaping
exp = BetterRegExp.escape "test"
pat = BetterRegExp exp, "g"

# Executing is the same
pat.exec "test"

# Testing is the same
pat.match "test"
