   This is an example program intended to illustrate very basic use of the PCRE regular expression library.  PCRE is NOT part of any
   UNIX or language standard; however, it is commonly found on UNIX systems today, and it has a compatibility mode that supports the
   standard interfaces.

   The vast irregularities found in various UNIX favors with regard to regular expression support can make using regular expressions
   frustrating.  It can be less difficult, and safer, to simply carry around a regular expression library with you!  PCRE is by far
   the most popular, "alternate", regular expression library available today.  It makes a fine choice for the budding UNIX
   programmer unwilling to explore the vulgarities of some operating system vendor's regular expression library.  If you are a C++
   programmer, another good alternative may be found as part of the BOOST library.

   Note: This program is very similar to the regex_example.c example found in this directory.
