  Description     : Haskell library for a tagged DFA regex engine

 An alternative to GHC's Text.Regex module with some enhancements.
 GHC's Text.Regex module marshalls the data back and forth to c-arrays to
 call libc and this is far too slow (and strict).
 This module parses regular expression Strings using a Parsec parser and
 creates an internal data structure (Text.Regex.Lazy.Pattern). This is then
 transformed a DFA table for matching against the input String or
 FastPackedString. The input string is consumed lazily, so it may be an
 arbitrarily long or infinite source.
 This package contains the libraries compiled for GHC 6.
