I am using \Q \E for quoting segments that should not be considered regexes.
Then I use ((?<!^)|[^/])\\Q**\\E((?!$)|[^/]) construct when looking for
illegal patterns. (this means you can only have 2 stars in a row if they
are delimited by
- start of pattern OR slash
- end of pattern OR slash
Do these things work in all different regex flavors?
And if not then how can I do it otherwise?
