1. PCRE ticket review

Hi

So, I'm going to plough my way through the tickets (and the manual), and see if they are feasible to continue, or have any point at all.

PCRE - Perl compatible regluar expressions - was updated to version 2 in 2010. Who noticed? Were you unhappy with version one (before 2010). Does PCRE do the job it needs to, and if so is there any need / point to upgrade to 2.

How much extra work will be needed to integrate PCRE2? Or could it be not compiled in, but used as a dll if required, with an include to wrap it.

My take, I'm fine with PCRE1, as I've possibly only used it once, and I tend to write my own search functions.

Thoughts please. I'll give you 5 days to give me a reason not to mark it completed.

Cheers, Chris

I'm happy with the actual version . I used it this year in various projects as the class preprocessor.

I updated the latest code to use PCRE 8.45 back in January of this year (See 3af58d7) which is considered the "last" release of PCRE. So yes, the solution would be to migrate to PCRE2 for a later release.

Given the difficulty in maintaining a large code base that incorporates sources from several other projects, I'm leaning towards some sort of "package" system and moving things like PCRE2 as an external library.
