Hi,

got  problem with big regexes:
I have a regex of about 70000+ words concated with '|' that I'd like to
match as a regex. /bla|blub|foo|bar|.....(70000)/

But unfortunately ruby gives me a 'regular expression too big' if I'm
trying to build such a thing.
I had a look at the regex.c code and saw the limit of 1 << 16 bytes for
regexes. Is there a way around this (without going down to 2000 words) ?

Thanks for any hint

Peter
