Wrapper for the PCRE library

'PME' is a C++ wrapper around the PCRE library designed to emulate Perl regular expression in both syntax and behaviour. Its Perl-like regex modifiers (imsxUg), backreference access, substitutions with backreference access in the replacement string, and splits are all similar to their Perl counterparts. It has been optimized for simplicity and ease of use.
