Hi! I am facing a nice core dump while using your latest version with this regex:
My string that I am trying to match is more complex than in this example, but I found that
! character was creating the core dump.
[jcmorin@qc-wrk055l~python_libs] (dev_string_optional_formatter)$ python Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Jul 23 2015, 15:22:56) [GCC 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-11)] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import regex >>> pattern = regex.compile('(?(?=.*\!.*)(?P<true>.*\!\w*\:.*)|(?P<false>.*))', flags=regex.DEBUG) CONDITIONAL AHEAD MATCH GREEDY_REPEAT 0 INF ANY CHARACTER MATCH '!' GREEDY_REPEAT 0 INF ANY EITHER GROUP 1 GREEDY_REPEAT 0 INF ANY CHARACTER MATCH '!' GREEDY_REPEAT 0 INF PROPERTY MATCH WORD:TRUE CHARACTER MATCH ':' GREEDY_REPEAT 0 INF ANY %sOR GROUP 2 GREEDY_REPEAT 0 INF ANY >>> pattern.match('!') Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Why is it crashing like this? I tried in pyhon 2.6.6 (64 bits) and 2.7.3 (64 Bits) on Linux and they both do a core dump.
Thanks for looking into this!
