Oniguruma regular expression library bindings for Ruby.
This is the initial release of these bindings, which allow developers
to use the powerful features of Oniguruma (named groups, look-behinds,
etc.) without the need to upgrado to Ruby 1.9 or to patch and recompile
the stable version.
We startet yesterday in the german Ruby-Forum to test the software. Due
compiler problems on Windows (I don’t have the C-compiler which is
the OneClickInstaller-Version) the tests were done by two persons on Mac
and Linux, both with same result.
The basic problem we encountered was, that an Oniguruma-5 version must
available. The binding cannot be compiled for Oniguruma-4 and
because the associated “oniguruma.h” does not contain definitions which
required. This does not match the documentation, which claims
Oniguruma versions 2 and 4.
The library should support Oniguruma-4 versions, because they will be
Ruby, starting with version 1.9, while Oniguruma-5 is not related to
one wants to use the pattern matching capabilities of Ruby 1.9, but
problems with libraries, that are not yet ported to Ruby 1.9, needs the
expression engine of Ruby 1.9 in Ruby 1.8 to avoid later porting
the own software.
