Will I ever remember which characters need quoting in Vim regular expressions? :blobcatnotlikethis:

@ayo anyway vim regexps are heavily inspired by posix so i tend to remember the rules most of the time

@wowaname I didn't know about \v, that looks useful!

vim regexps are indeed inspired by the posix "basic" regexes, whereas the rest of the world has long ago switched to the "extended" version...

@ayo usually there should be a plugin that does the escaping for us.
