If you look in the mod_php sources, you will see that I use regexpr
from Tatu Ylonen.  No real technical reason for using this over any other,
other than the fact that the license is completely unrestrictive.  I have
included it below.  Another plus is that it doesn't require any special
configuration or anything.  It consists of a single .c file along with a
header file.  It can be compiled directly into Apache without any problems.
Everyone who uses mod_php these days are already compiling it in.
