Go Regex

Simplifies the the go-pcre regex package. After calling a regex, the compiled output gets cached to improve performance.

This package uses the go-pcre package for better performance.


  sudo apt-get install libpcre3-dev
  go get github.com/AspieSoft/go-regex


import (

// pre compile a regex into the cache
// this method also returns the compiled pcre.Regexp struct

// run a replace function (most advanced feature)
regex.RepFunc(myByteArray, `(?flags)re(capture group)`, func(data func(int) []byte) []byte {
  data(0) // get the string
  data(1) // get the first capture group

  return []byte("")

  // if the last option is true, returning nil will stop the loop early
  return nil
}, true /* optional: if true, will not process a return output */)

// run a simple light replace function
regex.RepStr(myByteArray, `re`, myReplacementByteArray)

// return a bool if a regex matches a byte array
regex.Match(myByteArray, `re`)

// split a byte array in a similar way to JavaScript
regex.Split(myByteArray, `re|(keep this and split like in JavaScript)`)

// a regex string is modified before compiling, to add a few other features
`use \' in place of ` + "`" + ` to make things easier`
`(?#This is a comment in regex)`

// an alias of pcre.Regexp

// another helpful function
// this method makes it easier to return results to a regex function
regex.JoinBytes("string", []byte("byte array"), 10, 'c', data(2))

// the above method can be used in place of
append(append(append(append([]byte("string"), []byte("byte array")...), []byte(strconv.Itoa(10))...), 'c'), data(2)...)
