To compile the code for linux or unix, use gmake. Just unzip the zip file and run make -- you don't need to run configure. The make process is very straightforward if you don't have g++ and gmake: just compile all the .cpp files as c++ adding -I. to include the current directory. You must also compile the regex.c file as a plain vanilla .c file. Use -O2 optimization in all cases.
