re_comp.h - regular-expression-matching functions for re_comp() (LEGACY)


#include <re_comp.h>


The following are declared as functions and may also be declared as macros:

char  *re_comp(const char *string);
int    re_exec(const char *string);


This header is kept for historical reasons. New applications should use the regcomp(), regexec(), regerror() and regfree() functions, and the <regex.h> header, which provide full internationalised regular expression functionality compatible with the ISO POSIX-2 standard and the XBD specification, Regular Expressions .
