4.1 Word Operators

The operators in this section require Regex to recognize parts of words. Regex uses a syntax table to determine whether or not a character is part of a word, i.e., whether or not it is word-constituent.

4.1.1 Non-Emacs Syntax Tables  
4.1.2 The Match-word-boundary Operator (\b)  \b
4.1.3 The Match-within-word Operator (\B)  \B
4.1.4 The Match-beginning-of-word Operator (\<)  \<
4.1.5 The Match-end-of-word Operator (\>)  \>
4.1.6 The Match-word-constituent Operator (\w)  \w
4.1.7 The Match-non-word-constituent Operator (\W)  \W
