True, but since pcre is removed from the windows library download site, should the PCRE option still be in the config.nmake file?

In epan/ftypes/*c files, both the pcre lib and Gtkregex are  used causing the developer to take both into account.  IMHO, ugly.

In my case, I use the regcomp set of functions to build a library of regex expressions to parse my data sets.  If the pcre lib is available for Linux, why not for windows. I would request that the pcre libs/bin file be restored to the 1.4 and 1.6 (trunk) resources.

Since we don't need it for Windows as it's available trough glib/GTK, it probably got removed. can't you use the Glib/GTK equivalents?

I use the pcre (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions) library, however while the windows version is referenced in config.nmake, it does not exist in the predefined location for Makefile.nmake to install. 


Suggestions on working around this?

Thanks as always.
