Top 10 Pcre Open-Source Projects

  • the_silver_searcher

    A code-searching tool similar to ack, but faster.

    Project mention: Faster way to get only specific posts/comments from the large dataset files | reddit.com/r/pushshift | 2022-11-22

    If speed is a concern either ripgrep or the silver searcher are great replacements for grep.

  • nmap

    Nmap - the Network Mapper. Github mirror of official SVN repository.

    Project mention: Need to Document Network | reddit.com/r/sysadmin | 2022-11-22

  • compile-time-regular-expressions

    Compile Time Regular Expression in C++

    Project mention: Regex is comically slow. High performance alternatives? (Pattern matching for validation) | reddit.com/r/cpp_questions | 2022-11-19
  • T-Regx

    PHP regular expression brought up to modern standards.

    Project mention: Regex VS T-Regx - a user suggested alternative | libhunt.com/r/spatie/regex | 2022-04-05
  • RE-flex

    The regex-centric, fast lexical analyzer generator for C++ with full Unicode support. Faster than Flex. Accepts Flex specifications. Generates reusable source code that is easy to understand. Introduces indent/dedent anchors, lazy quantifiers, functions for lex/syntax error reporting and more. Seamlessly integrates with Bison and other parsers. (by Genivia)

    Project mention: Lua to Lisp - is Lua just sugared Lisp? | reddit.com/r/lisp | 2022-08-28

    A Lua-to-Lisp transpiler written in Bison and RE/flex (a modern alternative to Flex for C++.) The transpiler translates Lua language constructs to Lisp. Dare I say that Lua is essentially sugared Lisp? A quote by Paul Graham comes to mind "As computers have grown more powerful, the new languages being developed have been moving steadily toward the Lisp model."

  • rnm

    Unix tool: Bulk Rename Utility

    Project mention: Automatically Rename Comics on Mac | reddit.com/r/Komga | 2022-02-15

    This utility is pretty handy, but you'll need to read the manual. https://neurobin.org/projects/softwares/unix/rnm/

    Project mention: re: Elixir library for writing readable regexes in functional style | reddit.com/r/opensource | 2022-11-16

  • pcre-light

    A small, efficient and portable regex library for Perl 5 compatible regular expressions

  • pcre-utils

    Perl-like utility functions using the PCRE library
