1. Introduction

%regset.r is part of R2E2 - REBOL Regular Expressions Engine.

Purpose of 'regset is to convert small bit of regex to bitset! 'regset can handle regex' groups (everything in between [ and ].)

2. Usage

>> regset "a-z"
== make bitset! #{
000000000000000000000000FEFFFF0700000000000000000000000000000000
}

You can write a letter ("a"), a range ("a-z"), or you can exclude a set using "~" or "^".

2.1 Escaped characters

Escaped character must be escaped using "\" (back-slash). Following chars need to be escaped:

. ^ $ * + ? { [ ] \ | ( )

Other escaped characters (typically whitespaces):

\t - TAB
\r - CR
\n - LF
\a - bell
\e - escape
\f - form feed
\v - vertical tab

2.2 Predefined sequences

'regset supports some predefined sqeunces:

  • \d

Matches any decimal digit; this is equivalent to the class [0-9].

  • \D

Matches any non-digit character; this is equivalent to the class [^0-9].

  • \s

Matches any whitespace character; this is equivalent to the class [ \t\n\r\f\v].

  • \S

Matches any non-whitespace character; this is equivalent to the class [^ \t\n\r\f\v].

  • \w

Matches any alphanumeric character; this is equivalent to the class [a-zA-Z0-9_].

  • \W

Matches any non-alphanumeric character; this is equivalent to the class [^a-zA-Z0-9_].

3. Examples

3.1 Usage with 'parse

  • parse a word (alphanum characters)
>> parse "chleba" compose [some (regset "\w")]
== true
  • parse a phone number
>> parse "#340-5464" reduce ["#" 3 regset "\d" "-" 4 regset "\d"]
== true
