I am interested in regular expressions and how Perl and Python
compare. Particulary, I am interested in performance (i.e. speed),
memory usage, flexibility, completeness (i.e. supports simple and
complex regex operations...basically is RegEx a strong module/library
Anyone have any information on this? Any numbers, benchmarks?
Thanks so much. I know this is a perl user group...but try to be has
un-biased as you can.

Also, Perl is perfect (in my eyes) for prototyping and testing of
prototyped algorithms. Take a look at 'Benchmark' on search.cpan.org to
get an idea. If you just want lists, benchmarks and done work, I'm sorry
that I can't offer that.
That is not dead, which can eternal lie,
and with strange aeons even death may die.
