A regex engine.


The aim was to follow Vim's regex syntax. Esoteric special characters such as “\zs” are not implemented, however the just is supported.

match_t * regex_match(const regex_t * const regex, const char * const string, const bool start_of_string);

Returns a sentinel terminated array of match_t objects. The sentinel object is defined as (match_t){ .position = -1, .width = -1, };.

bool is_sentinel(const match_t * const match);

This is the function you must check whether a match_t is a sentinel or not. I.e. make this the break condition while looping the results.
