Objective-C framework for regular expressions.


RegexKit is an Objective-C framework for regular expressions:

  • Support for Mac OS X Cocoa and GNUstep. Mac OS X 10.4 or later required.
  • Mac OS X Universal Binary, including 64-bit support on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • No sub-classing required. Seamlessly adds regular expression support to all NSArray, NSDictionary, NSSet, and NSString Foundation objects with a rich set of Objective-C category additions.
  • Unicode enabled. Full Unicode support for NSString objects.
  • Extensive, high quality documentation.
  • Full source code with a BSD license.
  • Uses the BSD licensed PCRE Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library for the regular expression engine.
Tuned for high performance, including such features as:
  • Caches the compiled form of the regular expression for speed.
  • Multithreading safe, including multiple reader, single writer multithreaded access to the compiled regular expression cache.
  • Makes minimal use of heap storage (ie, malloc() and free()), instead allocating most temporary buffer needs dynamically from the stack.
  • Uses Core Foundation directly on Mac OS X for additional speed.

  • 64 bit support. Pre-built for ppc, ppc64, i386, and x86_64.
