I'm suprised too.  The regex routines that come with Tcl are based on
(one of) Spencer's packages.  None of the porting problems I've with
Tcl have come from that code -- I can't think of a single place where
it didn't compile the first time.

I suppose it is conceivable that his code won't port to some machine.
It seems pretty unlikely, though.

But if it is that much of a concern, then I'll volunteer to do
whatever porting work becomes necessary.
