Stability experimental
Regular expression matching. Uses the POSIX regular expression interface in Text.Regex.Posix.
type Regex = Regex
mkRegex :: String -> Regex
mkRegexWithOpts :: String -> Bool -> Bool -> Regex
matchRegex :: Regex -> String -> Maybe [String]
matchRegexAll :: Regex -> String -> Maybe (String, String, String, [String])
Regular expressions
type Regex = Regex
A compiled regular expression
mkRegex :: String -> Regex
Makes a regular expression with the default options (multi-line, case-sensitive). The syntax of regular expressions is otherwise that of egrep (i.e. POSIX "extended" regular expressions).
:: String The regular expression to compile
-> Bool True <=> @^@ and @$@ match the beginning and end of individual lines respectively, and '.' does not match the newline character.
-> Bool True <=> matching is case-sensitive
-> Regex Returns: the compiled regular expression
Makes a regular expression, where the multi-line and case-sensitve options can be changed from the default settings.
:: Regex The regular expression
-> String The string to match against
-> Maybe [String] Returns: Just strs if the match succeeded (and strs is the list of subexpression matches), or Nothing otherwise.
Match a regular expression against a string
:: Regex The regular expression
-> String The string to match against
-> Maybe (String, String, String, [String])

Returns: Nothing if the match failed, or:

  Just ( everything before match,
         portion matched,
         everything after the match,
         subexpression matches )
Match a regular expression against a string, returning more information about the match.
