Hi Michael

I'm note sure, I haven't used the Regex package since it was moved out
of the libs distributed with GHC. I think the multiple backends were
added after this, and it was extended so matching could work on
ByteStrings as well as Strings.

PCRE-light is a simpler alternative, if you can live with PCRE style
regexs rather than Posix ones:


Best wishes
