AW: [Mono-devel-list] Regular expression problem with characters '{' and '}'

Hello Eric,
I'm trying to capture the braces as literal characters, i.e. in the string "{test}"
and have forgotten to mask them. MS captures this string using "{\w+}", Mono 
throws an exception.

	Correct me if I am wrong, but the only usage of braces, as you say, is
	for quantifiers ;
	{n} {n,} {n,m} {n}? {n,}? {n,m}?
	where 'n' and 'm' are integer.
	What exactly are you trying to do.  Capturing group are between ()  
	and non-capturing (?: )
	I could be tempted to say that it is MS misbehaving but who am I to say
