  Description     : fast, safe C++ regular expression library

  RE2 is a fast, safe, thread-friendly alternative to backtracking
  regular expression engines like those used in PCRE, Perl, and
  Python.  It is a C++ library.
  Backtracking engines are typically full of features and convenient
  syntactic sugar but can be forced into taking exponential amounts of
  time on even small inputs.  RE2 uses automata theory to guarantee
  that regular expression searches run in time linear in the size of
  the input.  RE2 implements memory limits, so that searches can be
  constrained to a fixed amount of memory; RE2 is engineered to use
  a small fixed C++ stack footprint no matter what inputs or regular
  expressions it must process; thus RE2 is useful in multithreaded
  environments where thread stacks cannot grow arbitrarily large.

If there were no counterfactuals, this sentence would not have been paradoxical.
