What is the benefit of using the new classes? Are there speed improvements or are the new classes just different?
I read nothing about (new RegEx/PCRE) that in the Release Notes.
See blog post: New PCRE2 Plugin for Xojo
I expect the new library to be faster, especially when the JIT compiler comes to use.
And I assume there will soon be someone doing a benchmark.
I read the blog post before posting here. The blog doesn’t really contain any information about what changed. Are there new features?
It is version 2 of the PCRE library and new classes based on them.
The new thing may be the better unicode handing and the JIT compiler.
I made some optimisation and benchmarks:
Please try new plugin: MBS Xojo Plugins, version 22.2pr5
And I made some benchmarks and optimized it more: Iterate with PCRE2
