QuestionWhich type of Regex best to learn for programming with C? Pin

I like C but I feel it's Achilles heel is string processing. I've started to do a lot of parsing of text databases in arbitrary format without documentation lately and I need to adapt.

What I need to do is define patterns - expected format for the data and to store the values only if the whole string matches that known pattern. Input validation.

I'd rather not run the rest of my code without verifying the input conforms.

I think regular expressions are the best way to augment my existing skills without learning a new language, but regexes seem kind of varied and mixed breed.

Perl (5?) Seems to have formal standardization of regexes which is supported in many searching and text editing programs. There's also PCRE which I can compile on windows or download precompiled lib/dll.

Should I learn Perl regexes and use PCRE or am I overlooking things?
