(when (compilesOk) (announce newVersion))
This is a development release announcement of "TextRegexLazy"
The "TextRegexLazy" package is dead.
Long Live [regex-base -- interfaces
,regex-compat -- replace Text.Regex
,regex-posix -- PosixRE backend
,regex-pcre -- PCRE backend
,regex-parsec -- My lazy Haskell backend
,regex-dfa -- DFA based on modified CTKLight (LGPL)
Note: Everything is BSD licensed except the regex-dfa engine which is LGPL.
The darcs repository at http://evenmere.org/~chrisk/trl/head/ has the new version.
The regex-compat package is a single Text.Regex.New module that uses regex-posix
to replace Text.Regex (I cut and pasted from the Text.Regex module and
re-implemented some of the functions). The old Text.Regex.Posix module is
bypassed (so it could be removed in the future). Changing the dependency to a
different backend is as simply as changing the import statement. Changing from
String to ByteString would be a simple search-and-replace (and import
The regex-posix package does not have a personal copy of the posix regex library
like the copy GHC brings to Windows:
If someone can get regex-posix working on Windows, then
[regex-base,regex-posix,regex-compat] will be functionally ready to be included
along with GHC.
* Much Haddock fixing for the new module hierarchy
* Point the test cases at the new packages
