Description Kai Bartels 2003-01-30 12:18:52 UTC
I'm trying to construct a RE that detects valid date/datetime/time inputs. I
easily hit the above limit in doing so (all brackets needed for grouping!).
Is a hard coded limit really neccessary here?
Pls. remove it or add a parameter the the RE constructor to increase the limit
when neded. Thanx.

Ok, had a look myself. The number of {n,m} expressions is limited. I just
attached a patch to this report that works for me.
