Package: wnpp Severity: wishlist Owner: Peter Pentchev <firstname.lastname@example.org> * Package name : re2 Version : 20130115 Upstream Author : Stefano Rivera <email@example.com> * URL : http://code.google.com/p/re2 * License : BSD-3 Programming Lang: C++ 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. -- Peter Pentchev firstname.lastname@example.org roam@FreeBSD.org email@example.com PGP key: http://people.FreeBSD.org/~roam/roam.key.asc Key fingerprint 2EE7 A7A5 17FC 124C F115 C354 651E EFB0 2527 DF13 If there were no counterfactuals, this sentence would not have been paradoxical.
