Subject: Franz Tech Corner News: A new fast, Perl-compatible Regular Expression API

A new fast, Perl-compatible regular expression matcher is now
available as a patch to 6.2 and 7.0.beta. The following bullets
describe some of the features of the new matcher:

- The new matcher uses Perl syntax, and is nearly feature completely
compatible with Perl. Only a few obscure features have not been

- Speed: the new matcher was designed to be fast. On the
CL-PPCRE test suite (with 1600+ tests) it is on average 30% faster
than Perl.

- Regular expressions can use the Unicode character set (UCS-2).

- Named capture for submatches. For example, (match-re
"(?<foo>ab)\\k<foo>\\k<foo>" "aabababa") returns the values t,
"ababab", and "ab".
