    *Nothing* is equivalent to Perl's regexp handing. :-)
    Fortunately, you can access Perl functionality from Java using

    agreed, nothing beats perl's regex.. [ beeg fan of it ]

    extra regular expression packages for java include:


    http://jakarta.apache.org/regexp/
    http://www.cacas.org/java/gnu/regexp/

    i prefer the latter...

    have not really looked at the regex in 1.4
