Readme for matchers-

[back to package description]


This package contains helpers for performing text matches using regular expressions as well as simpler matching that sees if a particular substring exists within a larger string.

It was written mostly for use with Penny so it doesn't have much of a stable API.

It uses the pcre C library, so make sure you have that installed.
