The bloat points on Greta and Regexp++ is really interesting.
I have raised this bloat issue with Regexp++, but got no support :((
and never knew another bloat is on its way :-)

I particularly blamed boost for the Regexp++ bloat, since the version
before boost is still about 250 KB DLL on VC6 :-( What really have changed
that much?

Now, my main interest. The Greta library site is updated but I could not
download it, anyone having the same problem? I tried both NS6 and IE6.

Any independent verifications that Greta is 7 times faster than Regexp++?

Please gurus, drive this bloat issue to the max. We currently need a good
regular expression for the great Scintilla editor component -
the PCRE license is not interesting, but the bloat is preventing the
use of Regexp++. The whole Scintilla editor with basic regular expression
support is 190 KB (with VC++ 6.0), to add 550 KB+ dll regular
expresssion seems too much :((
