  <h1>Jakarta ORO</h1>
  The Jakarta-ORO Java classes are a set of text-processing Java classes
  that provide Perl5 compatible regular expressions, AWK-like regular
  expressions, glob expressions, and utility classes for performing
  substitutions, splits, filtering filenames, etc.  This library is
  the successor to the OROMatcher, AwkTools, PerlTools, and TextTools
  libraries from ORO, Inc. (www.oroinc.com).  They have been donated to
  the Jakarta Project by Daniel Savarese (www.savarese.org), the
  copyright holder of the ORO libraries.  Daniel will continue to
  participate in their development under the Jakarta Project.
  The Jakarta Project is lucky to also be able to offer another more "lightweight" 
  regexp <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/regexp/">solution</a> for you as well

  as this package. Options are a good thing and we will leave which one you choose 
  to use up to you. :-) They are both perfectly good packages, we just consider
  the Jakarta ORO package to be more a more complete regular expression package.
  You can download the latest released version from the <a 
  href="http://jakarta.apache.org/oro/dist/">distribution</a> directory.
  The Javadoc is <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/oro/apidocs/">available online</a>.

  It is also included in the distribution download.
  An online <a
  is available for commonly asked questions like, &quot;What is a regular
  expression?&quot;, &quot;Why did you do this? There are already other Java
  regexp packages available!&quot;, etc. 
  If you would like to get involved with this project in one way or another 
  (Mailing lists, CVS, Contributions), please see the <a 
  Involved</a> section of the Jakarta Website.
  <li>Daniel F. Savarese wrote the original code.</li>
  <li>Jon S. Stevens is responsible for helping prepare it for release.</li>
