Define a rule grammar, write a rule matcher which has a char ** or char
* as result and provide us the code. If you do it in lesser than
100 lines we can think about your mechanism. Note that you have
to parse the rules from a char buffer with proper length. I
don't care if you want to keep the information in rule structs
after writes to /pattern or in the char buffer. Just do it in
lesser than 100 lines to show us, that you're not delusional.

Thanks. Otherwise simply shut up.
