3.1 The Match-self Operator (ordinary character)

This operator matches the character itself. All ordinary characters (see section 2. Regular Expression Syntax) represent this operator. For example, `f' is always an ordinary character, so the regular expression `f' matches only the string `f'. In particular, it does not match the string `ff'.
