That's more like it !
I haven't tried Gaspar Chilingarov regexp lib but I assume
it is very good too. So why do we have this worthless
regexp library in OTP? I have never been able to use it
in any useful way!
I suggest that regexp in OTP is thrown out in favor of
one of the other available regexp libraries!
(or at least make it depreciated and bring in a useful alternative)
