I am much more familiar with GNU ERE's than with PCRE's from extensive gawk (GNU awk) practice and experience. I get confused by the differences. And I miss the GNU ERE "character class" components (like [[:alpha:]], [[:digits:]], [[:xdigits:]], etc.).
But it's never too late to learn new things.

Subject: Regular Expressions with Rexx
John Gateley and I will be publishing a full Rexx API to Perl Compatible Regular Expression package in z/OS, probably next week. This release will be complete if somewhat primitive, comparing to the experimental 1st release. I have noticed that there is not a lot of interest in that subject, which I understand, knowing the Rexx culture. However many of you do Java, ooRexx and are exposed to regular expressions even in Rexx context.
I would like to get feedback about the whole subject and about the API (I will publish its availability on the same lists) Ze'ev Atlas
