Regex / finite state library with support for callouts
posted 6 years ago
Does anyone know a
library for regular expression matching or similar finite state techniques that enables callouts like PCRE in C does?
I.e a library that allows you to define a regular expression like
along with a user-defined function F, and then after matching "abc" calls F on the current match state, and continues the match for "def" after F has returned?
It does not have to be this exact syntax, but general support for function callouts is something I need and haven't been able to find in Java yet.
