I thought it was limited to only matching. Checking again I find, at
least in the C++ bindings, also a Replace() operation. It's a bit more
limited than boost::Xpressive (cannot provide a callback for the
replace, only supports \0-9 in the replacement string). One point in
favor of pcre is UTF-8 support.
Thanks for the reminder, pcre indeed might be suitable.
For the record, I started to use pcre.
