    Is pcre available for ooRexx?
    I have searched but cannot find anything that has been done.

      Not sure they are "Perl Compatible", but ooRexx does have regular expressions.

      No, ooRexx is not Perl compatible. What it has is basic but functional. I would have been very happy with it 10 years ago. But, I have grown use to the power and robustness of Perl RE (as used in many of the programs I use). I was just hoping. I don't have the time right now to write some wrappers and was hoping that someone had.

      Thanks for your reply.

      OK, I know there are many folks that didn't realize that RE were included in 2.1.3 and in the release of ooRexx. Here is something else you may not be aware of: http://www.pcre.org/ Maybe if you get "time" a wrapper for this API would be useful to yourself as well as others.
