Dawid Weiss commented on LUCENE-6046:
-------------------------------------

Just a note -- Russ Cox wrote a series of excellent articles about different approaches of
implementing regexp scanners.

(There is no clear winner -- both DFAs and NFA have advantages.)

> When creating an automaton from an org.apache.lucene.util.automaton.RegExp, it's possible
for the automaton to use so much memory it exceeds the maximum array size for java.
> The following caused an OutOfMemoryError with a 32gb heap:
> {noformat}
> new RegExp("\\[\\[(Datei|File|Bild|Image):[^]]*alt=[^]|}]{50,200}").toAutomaton();
> {noformat}
> When increased to a 60gb heap, the following exception is thrown:
> {noformat}
>   1> java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: requested array size 2147483624 exceeds maximum
array in java (2147483623)
