I installed R on an Irix 5.3 system. Obviously the Irix libraries
don't contain functions for POSIX regular expressions.

Is it possible use the regex, or better rx libraries from GNU, and how
can I do it? Or do I have to live without functions using POSIX
regular expressions (e.g. apropos, methods)?

I have no GCC and I won't install it ...

Thanks in advance,
