[Haskell-cafe] Regular expressions on Windows 7

  Hello -

I am following the book "Real World Haskell". I am looking at the 
chapter on regular expressions
and trying examples on WinGHCi. However, it cannot load 
regex-posix-0.94.2 - apparently a file
regex.h is missing. I think this has been known for some time. Are there 
plans to have working
regexes on the Windows platform?

I am not enough of a hacker to be able to understand material on the Web 
on this subject -
the problem may have been solved somewhere.
