Apart from neither equal nor minus being any special in an RE (outside a
char class) unlike the question mark, which has been answered already...

Why are you guys now trying to re-invent the wheel in the special case
of a gray asphalt street? What about a dirt track, grass, and anything
else a wheel works on?

I've pointed it out before. Just use ok_locales, which is all about
these char sets. No REs, almost no thinking required, no headache. A
single line, and you're done.


char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0.@ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a \x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i (c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
