NAME

       Regexp::Optimizer - optimizes regular expressions

VERSION

       $Id: Optimizer.pm,v 0.23 2013/02/26 05:47:41 dankogai Exp dankogai $

SYNOPSIS

         use Regexp::Optimizer;
         my $o  = Regexp::Optimizer->new->optimize(qr/foobar|fooxar|foozap/);
         # $re is now qr/foo(?:[bx]ar|zap)/

EXPORT

       none.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

   new
       Makes a new optimizer instance.

         my $ro = Regexp::Optimizer->new;

   optimize
       Does the optimization.

         my $re = qr/foobar|fooxar|foozap/;
         $re = $ro->optimize($re);

       If it is already optimized -- no alteration in the regexp, it is practically an identity
       function which simply returns an argument.

       If not, it dissasembles the regexp, feeds it to Regexp::Assemble, and reassembles the
       result.

   as_string
       Same as "optimize()" but returns a string instead of regexp object.

CAVEAT

   ??{CODE} used
       This module depends on the "??{CODE}" regexp construct which is still considered
       experimental as of Perl 5.16.

   not idempotent
       If you feed the regexp that is already optimized, the resulting regexp may not necessarily
       the same -- usually you get duplicate "(?:)":

           my $re = qr/foobar|fooxar|foozap/;
           $re = $ro->optimize($re); # qr/foo(?:[bx]ar|zap)/
           $re = $ro->optimize($re); # qr/foo(?:(?:[bx]ar|zap))/
