#ifndef REGEXP_H__
#define REGEXP_H__

 * Definitions etc. for regexp(3) routines.
 * Caveat:  this is V8 regexp(3) [actually, a reimplementation thereof],
 * not the System V one.
 * MODIFICATION NOTE -- this is a modified version
 * I hacked this to add the "regtest()" function, which behaves in the
 * same way as re_comp() in terms of returning the error. regerror()
 * was also hacked so as to record the error in a global variable, and
 * not call exit().
 * I've also hacked it so that "#" will match [0-9], ie. a digit.
 * this makes my usage of this to be simpler. I've also added prototypes
 * in most places. I also added the #ifdef guard at the top of this file.
