Monkey patch regular expressions
# GoRella [![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/frostming/gorella.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/frostming/gorella)
Monkey patch regular expression methods to built-in string types
- split and rsplit
- find and rfind
- index and rindex
- partition and rpartition
- startswith and endswith
Besides, it extends the built-in string types with following methods of re module:
## Usage All you need is to import gorella in one line, everything is done for you: `python >>> import gorella >>> 'I am 26 years old.'.search('\d+').group() '26' ` For built-in methods, when pass a regular expression object, it will call the corresponding re function, else it falls back to built-in one: `python >>> pat = re.compile('\d+') >>> 'I am 26 years old.'.find('am') 2 >>> 'I am 26 years old.'.find(pat) 5 >>> 'I am 26 years old.'.partition(pat) ('I am ', '26', ' years old') ` Because it replaces the pure-C methods with python ones, the performance may be affected.
## Python 3 support The monkey patching highly depends on the C-API of CPython, so it doesn’t support other implementations than CPython. The test passes on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5
