Today I'm in the market for a fast regexp matcher so please send me a
copy if you have it handy :-)

I had a quick look at the one on trapexit but it crashed on the regexp
"^x" in build_nfa (a missing clause).

BTW years ago I ported the OTP Erlang regexp matcher to Haskell and
John Hughes immediately found a bug with Quickcheck. Now that
Quickcheck exists for Erlang too the OTP folks might find it handy.

Unfortunately this was on an infernal "Yahoo! Groups" forum and
it seems to have garbage collected the source code.
