Well, something very simple. Yet as usual more complex than at first glance...
I am wondering if Windows 2000 and Windows XP have some COM-based control like MSXML for processing regular expressions. Yes, I know that there are plenty of Delphi components for handling regular expressions but I'm searching for something built-in by the operating system.
Why I'm not using some Delphi solution? Well, I actually have searched for several soltions and found plenty of options but someone suggested to me to also check if the Windows API has some standard function to use instead.
If no such API or COM library exists in Windows XP then too bad... Never hurts to ask anyways.
