microregex is a lightweight regular expression library written in C for the Kite programming language (although it is usable for other purposes). It uses Perl syntax with some exceptions:

  • No (?...) support.
  • The following escapes do not work:
    • \G

For more information on Perl regular expression syntax, see here.


The latest version is 1.0b7.


Since this package uses GNU Autoconf and Automake, installation is a simple matter of running the following:

make check
make install

Total build time should only take a few seconds on any modern machine. For more information, please see the INSTALL file.


Documentation is available via Doxygen. Generating it on the source files in this folder should produce viewable HTML. Documentation is also available here.
