Subject [jira] Created: (JEXL-46) adding Perl-like regular-expression operators

adding Perl-like regular-expression operators

                 Key: JEXL-46
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 2.0
            Reporter: Alfred Reibenschuh

would it be possible to add the perl-like "=~" and "!~" operators to JEXL ?

to be used like:
str="this is in here";

if(str =~ 'is\s+in')
 // true here

or the simple (true) expressions:

"this is in here" =~ 'is\s+in'

"this is in here" !~ 'not'

i know i could use "str.match(pattern)" but for simple users of an application that like to
enter simple expressions "=~" and "!~" would do it without learning java string object methods.
