Version 1.1 (14 May 2000)

Contributions by Ales Novak:

  • RECompiler.compile() - copy on return
  • RE.matchNodes() - BOL and EOL cases if RE.MATCH_MULTILINE is specified. - Think of which prints MATCH!!!: ...... two times while in the older version only one time.
  • also contains an extension which allow to parse InputStreams, Readers and char arrays in addition to Strings. All needed modifications are only in the RE class.

  • Fix in the build system for building on NT
  • Documentation fixes / additions
