Subject [users@httpd] Regexps not unicode-compatible
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2019 16:11:39 GMT

When I use regexp from GNU tools, such as emacs or grep, which I 
think use the GNU libc, regexps support pretty well, depending on 
locale settings, all unicode, so with french locale [a-z] will 
match « ç », and with C locale, [а-ю] will match « д » (or any 
original cyrillic letter contained in all cyrillic languages, I 
guess).  [[:alnum:]] will correctly base on unicode class to 
determine if a given codepoint is a letter or not, and will 
support all languages.

However, I noticed that in apache these last ones won’t work and 
will only support ascii.  Why a such restriction?  Couldn’t it 
support at least optionally unicode at least on GNU systems?
