pcre - Perl-compatible regular expression library
Perl-compatible regular expression library.
PCRE has its own native API, but a set of "wrapper" functions that are based on
the POSIX API are also supplied in the library libpcreposix. Note that this
just provides a POSIX calling interface to PCRE: the regular expressions
themselves still follow Perl syntax and semantics. The header file
for the POSIX-style functions is called pcreposix.h.

- Let [:graph:], [:print:], and [:punct:] POSIX classes to handle Unicode
characters in UCP mode to match Perl behavior (bug #1400267)
- Fix matching Unicode ranges in JIT mode (bug #1402288)
