    I can't speak for anyone else, but I wrote a mockup main() and did some basic program design and decided I don't have time to make the entire thing. Perhaps this "beginner's" challenge was a little overambitious.

    Yeah, I made one in python (which works-ish), but I had no idea how I was going to implement $ and ^.

    If anyone's interested, this paper helped: http://swtch.com/~rsc/regexp/regexp1.html

    Next one please!

    Actually implementing ^ and $ was easier IMO.
    You only have to try to match the first/last 'n' chars (for ^ and $ respectively ) of the string with the regex in case no meta is present.
    Else trying only the first/last word suffices.

    That's true. I guess it's the way I implemented it. I'll post my (rubbish) solution this evening, I have a feeling it's bug-ridden though.
