issue2636-20101120.zip is a new version of the regex module.

The match object now supports additional methods which return information on all the successful matches of a repeated capture group.

The API was inspired by that of .Net:

    matchobject.captures([group1, ...])

        Returns a tuple of the strings matched in a group or groups. Compare with matchobject.group([group1, ...]).


        Returns a tuple of the start positions. Compare with matchobject.start([group]).


        Returns a tuple of the end positions. Compare with matchobject.end([group]).


        Returns a tuple of the spans. Compare with matchobject.span([group]).
