Fwd: Regex Searching on Arbitrary Sequences

Very Nice!

It’s a very handy and powerful technique. And I really like the way you
have
generalized it to “all objects”

I have used that technique twice before…

Once decades ago I used it to recognised the longest possible straight
line
sequence of pixel boundaries to do raster to vector conversion in a
exact
and near optimal manner.

More recently I “meta’d” it to step up a lexer to a grammar parser with
LittleLexer. http://littlelexer.rubyforge.org/

The gem requires Ruby 1.9+.
