You could use the regexp calls available in Tcl/Tk through TASH, an Ada
binding to Tcl/Tk.
Using the Tcl/Tk regexp routines has the *disadvantage* of carrying Tcl/Tk
along with it. It's not pure regexp.
However, it has the *advantage* of also providing routines for string and
list handling, hash tables, and platform-independent graphical user interfaces.
I think it's a net gain, but take a look for yourself at http://tash.calspan.com.

My favorites are Barnes and Ada RM.
