quote-re

Arguments: string

This convenience function accepts a string argument and returns a regular expression that matches that string literally, giving no special interpretation usually given to the special characters in regexp string syntax.

This function is implemented by simply returning a tree form regexp, wrapping a :sequence regexp around the argument string.

Example

(regexp:quote-re "()")
  ==>
(:sequence "()")

(regexp:match-re "()" "(defun foo () ...)")
  ==>
t
""
""

(regexp:match-re (regexp:quote-re "()") "(defun foo () ...)")
==>
t
"()"

The symbol naming this operator is also exported from the regexp package.

See The new regexp2 module in regexp.htm for further information on this function and the regexp2 module.
