NAME
       check-regexp -  test regular expressions from the command line

SYNOPSIS
       check-regexp 'regular expression' 'string1' 'string2' ...

DESCRIPTION
       check-regexp (GNU Source-highlight)

       You  simply  pass  as  the first command line argument the regular expression and then the
       strings you want to try to match.
       It is crucial, in order to avoid shell substitutions, to enclose both the  expression  and
       the strings in single quotes.

       The program then prints some information about the possibly successful matching.
       In the output the what[0] part represents the whole match, and the what[i] part represents
       the i-th marked subexpression that matched.

       The program also prints possible prefix and suffix.

OPTIONS
       This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long  options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -h, --help
	      Print help and exit

       -V, --version
	      Print version and exit
