Dear experts,

I want to implement regular expressions in C++ for Linux environment. One of my friend recommended me to use REGEX Library by GNU. Could you provide me some documentation as well as code examples about using this library?

I'd strongly recommend you consider using the regex library that is part of boost. Not only is it a fantastic library it will end up being part of the next version of the CPP standard.

for C development simply do 'man regex' at the shell and you see the syntax for reccomp (compiles a regular expression) and regexec (applies the regular expression). i used it once and had no significant problems.
