This post describes how graph and automata theory can help compile a regular expression like “ab(cd|e)*fg” into the following asymptotically (linear-time) and practically (around 8 cycles/character on my E5-4617) efficient machine code. The technique is easily amenable to SSE or AVX-level vectorisation, and doesn’t rely on complicated bit slicing tricks nor on scanning multiple streams in parallel.
