      LPeg is a new pattern-matching library for Lua, based on Parsing
      Expression Grammars (PEGs). Parsing expression grammars look
      similar to regular expressions or context-free grammars in
      Backus-Naur form (BNF) notation. PEGs make a good replacement for
      regular expressions, because they are strictly more powerful. For
      example, a regular expression inherently cannot find matched pairs
      of parentheses, because it is not recursive, but a PEG can.
