  Description     : Perl module to test regular expressions

Test::Regexp is intended to test regular expressions. Given a subject
string and a regular expression (aka pattern), the module not only
tests whether the regular expression complete matches the subject
string, it performs a utf8::upgrade or utf8::downgrade on the subject
string and performs the tests again, if necessary. Furthermore, given
a pattern with capturing parenthesis, it checks whether all captures
are present, and in the right order. Both named and unnamed captures
are checked.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
