I’m quite new to this place and never wrote anything here, as I usually am satisfied with the Rust so far, but recently, skimming through Ruby docs, I stumbled upon one interesting idea of indexing a string with a regex.
I thought it would be cool to have such feature in Rust and threw out a PoC. Example usage would be:
let re = regex!(r"W\w+"); let world = &"Hello, World"[Re(re)]; println!(world);
As you can see I have to use newtype to work around trait implementation rules, which is OK. What I think, it would be cool to have
impl Index<Regex> for str in regex crate ready to use, which would make the code more clear and elegant (at least from my POV).
Before providing a PR in Github with this thing, I decided to ask community about the feature, would you accept it in Rust regex crate? What would you say?
