This module provides support for accessing the compiled representation of PCRE regular expressions. This byte array encodes a lookup-table based representation for the regular expression, and can be safely written out and read back by compatible PCRE versions.
A synonym indicating which ByteStrings represent PCRE-format compiled data.
Compiles the given regular expression, and assuming nothing bad happens, yields the bytestring filled with PCRE's compiled representation.
Takes a compiled regular expression, and if successful, yields the compiled representation.
