re2: R Interface to Google RE2 (C++) Regular Expression Library

Pattern matching, extraction, replacement and other string processing operations using Google's RE2 <> regular-expression engine. Consistent interface (similar to 'stringr'). RE2 uses finite-automata based techniques, and offers a fast and safe alternative to backtracking regular-expression engines like those used in 'stringr', 'stringi' and other PCRE implementations.
