I attached a debugger to a running Wolfenstein: The Old Blood process and found this in memory. I have no idea why it's there.

briangordon / Regex challenge
Last active Dec 20, 2015
This is a speed run. It's not how I would implement a more fully-featured regex engine. I was tripped up by a couple of bugs so the first one took me a total of 90 minutes to write. Later I had an idea for a simpler version that doesn't work in all cases. It took me 25 minutes to write.

Consider the subset of regular expressions that only use lowercase letters, parentheses, and the Kleene star *.
The presence of a Kleene star means that the preceding parenthesized phrase can appear zero or more times.
Parentheses are only valid around the text preceding a Kleene star. Write a program that takes such a regular
expression and a string and determines whether or not that entire string matches the regular expression.
For example, the string on the left matches the regular expression on the right:
hello hello
testtest (test)*
helllllllo he(l)*lo
