the given string.

in: first argument  : a regex generated by regcomp  
OR a string which will be converted
to a regex by a regcomp call.
second argument : the string with which regex should
be replaced.
third argument : an istream or a string where this
regex should be matched.
fourth argument (if any): an ostream where the changes
are saved.
out: either a string or, if called with streams, the
ostream will now contain replaced stream.

Diagnostics:
if called with a string as first argument, will raise an  
/InvalidRegexError if regcomp fails to compile a regex.
