The title is quite misleading.

BrianOn99 I tried 5 different implementation of Regex, across python and java. Not all of them can be linked in the article (so only a couple were shared).

The article very clearly says that regex is good for pattern matching which FlashText doesn’t even try to do.

I tried trying regex from rust because someone suggested it, and it was quite fast. No Issues there, but then again that regex didn’t take care of word boundaries. Which didn’t solve my problem.

I hope you understand, The Title is not misleading if you read the article.

Nowhere in the title or the article I am saying that regex is bad, all codes, benchmarks, everything is linked. Only facts had been called out.
