The RegexParserFunctions extension adds a parser function called 'regex' (or 'regexp') which is used to perform regular expression pattern matching and replacement.

The extension in unmaintained by the original author, but is now maintained by me (User:VitaliyFilippov) as a part of Mediawiki4Intranet project. The security issue found by User:Pastakhov (one with the null-byte) is fixed in our version, and the extension is compatible with latest versions of MediaWiki.
