Bug#928023: ITP: nim-regex -- library for parsing and executing regular expressions




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Steffen Moeller <moeller@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : nim-regex
  Version         : 0.4.0
* URL             : https://github.com/nitely/nim-regex
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: nim
  Description     : library for parsing and executing regular expressions

This package is to be team-maintained on salsa.d.o/nim-team/nim-regex

 The package provides a library for parsing, compiling, and executing
 regular expressions for the nim programming language. The match time
 is linear with respect to the length of the input and the regular
 expression. So, it can handle input from untrusted users. Its syntax
 is similar to PCRE but lacks a few features that can not be implemented
 while keeping the space/time complexity guarantees, i.e.: backreferences
 and look-around assertions.
 .
 Features:
  * The match time is linear in the length of the input string
  * Regular expressions are (optionally) compiled at compile-time
  * Captures all group repetitions (not just the last one)
  * Unicode level-1 support
  * Descriptive error messages
