Came across an excellent reg expr package at

Can be used at many levels - from raw API to posix compatible interface to a
more C++ approach using locales etc.

Still looking for a good solution to these :)

Found some of these.

I was intrigued by some of Valentin's comments about his own box of tricks.
(indicating his own gui (or wrappings to one at least) etc)

Judging by his useful comments here I would imagine they'd be worth looking

Anyone know his current home page?
