Procmail regular expression: word end boundary matching
I seems not able to get the word end boundary matching for procmail
works. Here is my test rc file:
* 1^0 \<test\>
* 1^0 test
and there is a ' test ' in my test email.
However, from the dry run log, I can see that '\<test\>' did not match
yet 'test' did.
Anything I'm missing?
1. my procmail
$ procmail -v
procmail v3.22 2001/09/10
. . .

A shorthand for the character class [^a-zA-Z0-9_] except it can also
This is an incompatible imitation of the "word end boundary" operator
found in some extended regular expression implementations. Note that \<
and \> are actually identical.
