Sadly, "Regular Expressions" are not nearly regular enough to be standardized: there is a very wide variety of implementations, many of which are not compatible with each other. If you wish to ask about regular expressions - and this is the right forum for it! - please be sure to post the expression and
the tool you're using it with. Be specific, as many of the areas where people ask questions are the ones that are version dependent. If Perl: which version? If Java: which package?
