$ gcc -Wall -Wextra -Werror -pedantic regex.c -o regex
$ ./regex
String = "1) John Driverhacker;
2) John Doe;
3) John Foo;
"
#0 match:
rm_so = 25; rm_eo = 32; len = 7
substring = "John Do"
#1 match:
rm_so = 6; rm_eo = 14; len = 8
substring = "John Foo"

Hello Michael,

Here's the example for regex.3 :-}

I realized now that the output is a bit weird:
I'm printing the offset incorrectly (except for the first match).
I'll fix it in a few minutes.

Thanks,

Alex
