The Java ORO stuff is now under the Apache Software Foundation license. I'm
posting here because the licensing of the ORO stuff came up at the
Consortium meeting the other day re: its inclusion in JPython. Information
is available at <http://jakarta.apache.org/oro/>

The Apache Jakarta project also has a lighter weight regexp engine under the
ASF license (depending on how much "stuff" is needed). Info at

Please forward to the JPython lists as appropriate.

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
