Sorry if this is already discussed somewhere but after a trawl through
this forum I couldn’t find what the state of play is with regular
expression support in IronRuby.
I took a look at the IronRuby.Libraries assembly and saw the comment
below so I’ve hazarded a guess the guts of regular expression support
for IronRuby is still on the ToDo list? In which case it will be a while
before the /^.+/ constructs can be used?
“// TODO: this implementation is totally wrong, but this is a
placeholder for a couple of weeks until
// jomes gets a real implementation of regex. This is only here to
enable the spec running harness.”
