Regex search - trying to find this special character \

Hi 


I am having issues to find out  a particular character in a string. I have used the Regex Search, and I want to find if a particular character appears on it . The character is \ .


It issues an warning as : "parsing ""^\"" - Illegal \ at end of pattern."   




Solution

err, you should escape the backslash with a backslash, since it's a special (escape) character

I suggest to test your regex with https://regexstorm.net/tester for example.


Solution

thanks. solved. :)

Like above, escape each of the characters with a backslash.

\[\]
