26 Oct 2012 - All of these libraries are terrible. They're unmaintained, fail to compile, have cumbersome APIs, are monadic when they should be pure, use arrays and indices instead of lists, and in the worst case, use a funky combination of Either and Maybe at the same time. Not only is there no de facto regex library in Haskell, all of them are terrible.

Can we find a decent, modern Haskell regex library and promote it above the others?


04/08/2011 - Section 2: There is a reference to Bryan O’Sullivan’s blog that has some tutorials on regular expressions (pertaining to the =~ operator) except this is horrendously out of date as the libraries have changed a lot since it was written. Argue for removal or link to alternative tutorial?
