I'm seeking pointers to alternatives to standard regular expression
The original theoretical definition of regexp's resulted in
expressions which were simple and clear and readable.
But life is always complicated and the various pragmatic
implementations of regexps sub-languages found in Perl/Emacs/grep
etc. etc. all have major extensions to the theoretic version and all
have slight differences and all have complex special case rules.
So what I'm seeking are pointers to a far more readable, elegant and
consistent pragmatic pattern recognition language.
