Package: vdr-plugin-epgsearch
Version: 1.0.1~beta6+git20150211-4.1
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

Please enable pcre-library in the build to get Pearl compatible regexes.
Default compile options in epgsearch only enable POSIX Extended Regular
Expressions which in my opinion lack features that users are expecting.

Epgsearch supports pcre out of the box but this needs to be enabled at compile
time. From INSTALL document:

"For support of Perl compatible regular expressions in a search you have to use
simply edit the plugins Makefile and uncomment '#REGEXLIB = pcre' to
'REGEXLIB = pcre' or append 'REGEXLIB=pcre' to your 'make plugins'
call. (you will need pcreposix installed, comes with libpcre from
www.pcre.org, but it's already part of most distributions)"

This would add dependency to libpcre. (Package if have installed at the moment
is locally compiled with pcre so system information shows this dependecy
