Sorry, I didn't know if this question has been brought up earlier.  Does anyone
know if regular expressions might be supported in the language the way perl
does?  I didn't see any documentation about it, so I am assuming it will be
supported through a library.  Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, I was
just curious.

See documentation, Phobos page. Regular expressions are part of the standard library from the first day on, but definately not Perl way. -eye

It's in the standard library. The std.regexp module in D contains regular expressions. To see how it's done in D, you can look at my example at: http://www.dsource.org/tutorials/index.php?show_example=58 -- Justin http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
