QRegExp Escaping special characters problems detecting word boundaries

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      When using \b escaped special characters fail to match

      For Eample :

      QString test = QString("foo $40");
      test.replace(QRegExp("\\b\\$40
      b"), "foo");
      qDebug() << (test == "foo foo" ? "success" : "failure"); //failure

      Escaping a special character e.g.
      $ should make QRegExp see it as a normal character.

      This happens for all special characters except _
