Synopsis

# The Tutorial

We have a regex tutorial at http://tutorial.regex.uk.

# How to use this library

This module just provides a brief overview of the regex package. You will need to import one of the API modules of which there is a choice which will depend upon two factors:

• Which flavour of regular expression do you want to use? If you need Posix flavour REs then you will want the TDFA modules, otherwise its PCRE for Perl-style REs.
• What type of text do you want to match: (slow) Strings, ByteString, ByteString.Lazy, Text, Text.Lazy or the anachronistic Seq Char or indeed some good old-fashioned polymorphic operators?

While we aim to provide all combinations of these choices, some of them are currently not available. In the regex package we have:

The PCRE modules are contained in the separate regex-with-pcre package:

• Text.RE.PCRE.ByteString
• Text.RE.PCRE.ByteString.Lazy
• Text.RE.ZeInternals.PCRE
• Text.RE.PCRE.Sequence
• Text.RE.PCRE.String
• Text.RE.PCRE
