-DESCRIPTION = "Perl-compatible regular expression library. PCRE has its own native \
-API, but a set of 'wrapper' functions that are based on the POSIX API \
-are also supplied in the library libpcreposix. Note that this just \
-provides a POSIX calling interface to PCRE; the regular expressions \
-themselves still follow Perl syntax and semantics. The header file for \
-the POSIX-style functions is called pcreposix.h."
