PCRE

The "regular expression"-routines used in Hamster are based on "Perl-Compatible Regular Expression (PCRE)" written by Philip Hazel (see http://www.pcre.org/ for details):

============================================================================
PCRE LICENCE
PCRE is a library of functions to support regular expressions whose syntax
and semantics are as close as possible to those of the Perl 5 language.

============================================================================

Although the wrapper-class used for PCRE uses a slightly different approach, parts of it are at least inspired by the concepts used in "uperlre". "uperlre" is a wrapper-class for PCRE written by Luu Tran (<luu(at)xnews.3dnews.net>), also author of XNews newsreader (see http://xnews.3dnews.net/ for details).
