NSRegularExpression implementation


(Lukas Stabe) #1

I have been thinking about trying to work on NSRegularExpression in corelibs-foundation, although I am not yet sure I’ll have time for it.

If I were to attempt it, am I correct in assuming that it should be based on icus (u)regex.h? I have not found any Regex support in CoreFoundation.

NSRegularExpression is backed by ICU’s uregex; there is no regex support in CF however since ICU is a pretty involved C API it would not be un-reasonable to create an accessor API to make certain behaviors easier to deal with in swift.
