Good morning,

I just looked at the erlang re documentation and I think it has a nice 

just a few functions with clear names.

I always have trouble to remember which of python's re.match and does what.

For my taste, there are also enough examples included. Just the PCRE 
options are a bit overwhelming.

It would help if you could elaborate on the areas where you have problems.

Kind regards,
