Regex vocabulary mod rewrite
Hi,
it would be nice to have a list of the pattern characters from mod
rewrite. At http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/rewrite/intro.html#regex
for many noobs in regex (including me) it is not that simple to find
the right regex.
Maybe a bit clearer would be:


Text:
. Any single character
[chars] One of chars
[^chars] None of chars
text1|text2 text1 or text2
- range if used between square brackets

Quantifiers:
? 0 or 1 of the preceding text
! at start of string means "negative pattern"
* 0 or N of the preceding text (N > 0)
+ 1 or N of the preceding text (N > 1)
{} minimum to maximum quantifier

Grouping:
(text) Grouping of text

Anchors:
^ Start of line anchor
$ End of line anchor

Escaping:
\ char escape that particular char


Thoughs?


Cheers
Mario
