regex_try 0.1.0

Replace methods for Regex propogating errors via Result.

An extension of Regex supporting Result in replace methods.

The replace, replace_all and replacen methods of Regex accept a function returning the replacement for each matched substring, but they do not allow this function to return a Result. This crate provides try_replace, try_replace_all, and try_replacen which fill this gap.


Include use regex_try::RegexTry to use the additional methods provided by this crate.


use regex::Regex;
use regex_try::RegexTry;

pub fn main() -> Result<(), std::io::Error> {
let re = Regex::new(r"load! (\w+);").unwrap();
let template = std::fs::read_to_string("Cargo.toml")?;
let result = re.try_replace_all(&template, |captures|
// read_to_string returns a Result, and so it couldn't
// be used with re.replace_all
println!("{}", result);
