Rosie Pattern Language (replaces regex for data mining and text search)

Project description


Rosie installation (see

Rosie and the Rosie Pattern Language (RPL)

RPL expressions are patterns for matching text, similar to regex but more powerful. You can use RPL for text pattern matching the way you might use PCRE or regex in Perl, Python, or Java. Unlike regex, RPL is readable and maintainable, and packages of rpl are easily shared.

The Rosie project provides a library so you can use RPL from a variety of programming languages. We also provide an interactive read-eval- print loop for pattern development and debugging, and an RPL compiler. The Rosie matching engine is very small and reasonably fast.
