DllCall for using regular expressions

Recommended Posts

I remember someone posting it but I can't find it. The built in regular expression engine just doesn't work correctly. I've verified that \<h2\>.+\<\/h2\> should match h2 tags with anything at all inbetween them, but the built in engine chokes on the 12th character colon in <h2>Template:Spanish-name and Template:Chinese-name</h2>. According to the help file, a period should Match any single character. Apparantly not!

Anyway, if anyone knows where that dll is that would be helpful.

It appears that (<h2>.+</h2>) is the correct way. I could still go for that DllCall. I don't plan on learning a non-standard implementation of something so widely used across languages.

Actually, that's the method of regular expression that I am most familiar with. It would appear that you are more familiar with the PERL style regular expressions. If you've ever used PHP, you'll noticed that you have a choice in which RegEx style you use, either PERL, or POSIX. It's not necessarily non-standard, just another choice.
