  i use gregexp (written by pascal brisset);

  it does submatches and is (or at least used to be) quite a bit faster
than the pretty pathetic OTP regexp.

  rumour has it that robert virding is working on a new erlang
implementation; couldn't find any code by googling though.

  if you want a real (as in something used outside the erlang world)
regexp, the links below shows how to turn the PCRE (http://www.pcre.org)
library into a couple of BIFs (code by istvan varadi). used to work very
well in R11B.


  if i had to do it again i'd chose the TRE library instead.
  of course, seems like it's already been done by some French guy;

  Claes "klacke" Wikström will of course not be outdone;


  this got to be a bit longer that i intended. i'll post it anyways to
aid future googlers.
