CHECK-REGEXP(1)			 User Commands		       CHECK-REGEXP(1)

NAME
       check-regexp -  test regular expressions	from the command line

SYNOPSIS
       check-regexp 'regular expression' 'string1' 'string2' ...

DESCRIPTION
       check-regexp (GNU Source-highlight)

       You  simply pass	as the first command line argument the regular expres-
       sion and	then the strings you want to try to match.
       It is crucial, in order to avoid	shell substitutions, to	 enclose  both
       the expression and the strings in single	quotes.

       The  program then prints	some information about the possibly successful
       matching.
       In the output the what[0] part represents  the  whole  match,  and  the
       what[i] part represents the i-th	marked subexpression that matched.

       The program also	prints possible	prefix and suffix.

OPTIONS
       This  program  follows the usual	GNU command line syntax, with long op-
       tions starting with two dashes (`-').  A	summary	of options is included
       below.

       -h, --help
