This is the source code repository for RE2, a regular expression library.
For documentation about how to install and use RE2, visit https://github.com/google/re2/.
The short version is:
make make test make install make testinstall
Building RE2 requires Abseil (abseil/abseil-cpp) to be installed on your system. Building the testing for RE2 requires GoogleTest (google/googletest) and Benchmark (google/benchmark) to be installed as well.
There is a fair amount of documentation (including code snippets) in the re2.h header file.
