Most of those glibc tests are actually text file driven, where you have
a small testcase driver which opens the text file, parses it and invokes
regex on the pattern in one column, text to search in another one, with some
flags etc. in yet other columns.  4 different file formats I think, each
with hundreds of individual tests.  The reason for different file formats
is where those come from, there are e.g. boost regex tests, rxspencer regex
tests, pcre tests and then supposedly glibc's own old format.
