CL-PPCRE - Portable Perl-compatible regular expressions for Common Lisp
CL-PPCRE is a portable regular expression library for Common Lisp which has the following features:
- It is compatible with Perl (especially when used in conjunction with cl-interpol, to allow compatible parsing of regexp strings).
- It is pretty fast.
- It is portable between ANSI-compliant Common Lisp implementations.
- It is thread-safe.
- In addition to specifying regular expressions as strings like in Perl you can also use S-expressions.
- It comes with a **BSD-style license** so you can basically do with it whatever you want.
CL-PPCRE has been used successfully in various applications like BioBike, clutu, LoGS, CafeSpot, Eboy, or The Regex Coach.
