C++ wrapper-class for the PCRE library

'PCRE'++ is a C++ wrapper-class for the PCRE library (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions). It lets you use Perl-alike regular expressions in your C++ applications. You can use it to search in strings, to split strings into parts using expressions, or to search and replace one part of a string with another.
