Many thanks to everyone who made suggestions.
http://meurrens.ml.org/ip-Links/java/regex/ takes advantage of too many
annoying web page tricks, but it does offer a comprehensive list of java
regexp packages and is more up-to-date than
http://home.worldcom.ch/~jmlugrin/RegExSummary.html (last updated 5/97),
which I had been working from.
The gnu package at http://www.cacas.org/~wes/java/ is small, lean, and I
got it to work, so I'll probably continue with that.
I originally mentioned that I couldn't get the oroinc one to work.
According to the top of http://www.oroinc.com/downloads, their main
distribution doesn't work with Java 1.2. The same page provides a link
to a version that does. Several other packages out there build on this
The evaluation copy of http://javaregex.com/ outputs a message about
being an evaluation copy, and in my "lazy evaluation" mode, I was just
redirecting my output to a file in which I didn't need that message. If
I didn't see anything else I liked, my next planned step was to create a
proper output stream for my program's output, at which point I wouldn't
have this problem anymore. $10 certainly seems reasonable.
