Regex(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	      Regex(3)

NAME
       POSIX::Regex - OO interface for the gnu regex engine

SYNOPSIS
	   use POSIX::Regex qw(:all);

	   my $reg = new POSIX::Regex('a\(a\|b\)\(c\)');

	   print "You win a toy!\n" if $reg->match("aac");

	   if( my @m = $reg->match("abc") ) { #	returns	the matches
	       print "entire match: ", shift @m, "\n";
	       print "\tgroup match: $_\n" for @m;

	   } else {
	       print "No toy for you!\n";
	   }

REGULAR	OPTIONS
       (All of the following text was plagarized without edit from 'man	3
       regex'.)

       If you choose to	import :all then you will have the following regular
       options that you	may optionally pass to new() (aka regcomp).

   REG_ICASE
       Do  not differentiate case.  Subsequent regexec() searches using	this
       pattern buffer will be case insen- sitive.

   REG_EXTENDED
       Use POSIX Extended Regular Expression syntax when interpreting regex.
       If not set, POSIX  Basic	 Regular Expression syntax is used.

   REG_NEWLINE
       Match-any-character operators don't match a newline.

       A non-matching list ([^...])  not containing a newline does not match a
       newline.

       Match-beginning-of-line operator	(^) matches the	empty string
       immediately after a newline, regardless of whether eflags, the
       execution flags of regexec(), contains REG_NOTBOL.

       Match-end-of-line operator ($) matches the empty	string immediately
       before  a newline,  regardless  of whether eflags contains REG_NOTEOL.

   REG_NOTBOL
       The match-beginning-of-line operator always fails to match  (but	see
       the compilation	flag  REG_NEWLINE above) This flag may be used when
       different portions of a string are passed to regexec() and the
       beginning of the	string should not be interpreted as the	beginning of
       the line.

   REG_NOTEOL

       I am using this software	in my own projects...  If you find bugs,
       please please please let	me know. :) Actually, let me know if you find
       it handy	at all.	 Half the fun of releasing this	stuff is knowing that
       people use it.

FAQ
       Yes, I'm	aware there's special support for alternate regular expression
       systems in perl 5.10.x ... let me know when people are done with	perl
       5.6 and 5.8 and I'll delete this	from CPAN.  Thanks.
