Dear Haskell Cafe,
With the regex announcement, I wanted to try get other folks' perspective
on what has been happening with the Haskell regular expression libraries.
I have been in turn impressed at how good the engineering of the Regex
packages while gobsmacked by how difficult the traditional Text.Regex API
is to use.
In this blog post,
I rather cheekily speculate that the Haskellers perhaps have been a bit
disdainful of regular expressions (not important in a language capable
of doing proper parsing, etc.).
What do you think?
