4.1.1 Non-Emacs Syntax Tables

A syntax table is an array indexed by the characters in your character set. In the ASCII encoding, therefore, a syntax table has 256 elements. Regex always uses a char * variable re_syntax_table as its syntax table. In some cases, it initializes this variable and in others it expects you to initialize it.
