  Description     : Syntax extension for OCaml to make Regexp usage much easier
 Regexp/OCaml provides convenient syntax sugar for regular expression
 match for strings using PCRE/OCaml library. The features of this macro
 package are the following: 

 Convenient syntax: similar to standard match-with expression 
 Binding matching substrings to variables: no more $1, $2, ... 

 Automagical easy-to-use type-coercion: no flood of int_of_string etc. 

 Support for optional-patterns: gives string option type etc. 

 Default values for optional-patterns 

 A regular expression which appears in the source file will be evaluated
 only once; it is pre-compiled before actual execution and then cached.
 The package contains a small macro, called "once", makes any value to
 be evaluated only once. 

Binary package will be libocaml-regexp-pp-dev.
