Support other regex flavors (PCRE/PCRE2)...

Post by 4EverMaAT » Fri Nov 01, 2019 7:29 am

I was curious what made you primarily support .NET regex?

if you intended to support PCRE (PHP) / PCRE2 regex or other regEx flavors, that would be good.

I understand you cannot support them all, but a couple of more popular ones wouldn't be a bad idea.

What do you think?

It uses .NET because the program is written natively using .NET and this is the flavour built into the framework!

I'll have a look into other types - I suspect this will mean adding a 3rd party library into the mix but it shouldn't be a problem.
