Relevant Common Lisp packages

Following packages and libraries implement substring search, string search, pattern matching and regular engine implementations on Lisp.

  • CL-DAWG: Direct Acyclic Word Graph implementation
  • BK-TREE: implements a derivative of BK-Tree data structure
  • provides in-memory and on-disk Trie implementations
  • proc-parse: procedural string parser. Parses strings and octets, wraps multiple patterns dispatcher into macros making them more readable.

Regular expression matchers:

  • cl-irregsexp: offers fast text matching.
  • CLAWK: AWK implementation embedded into Common Lisp.
  • re: small, lightweight, and very fast, regular expression library for LispWorks. It is a non-recursive, backtracing VM. The syntax is similar to Lua-style pattern patching, but has added support for additional regex features.
