that's not standard regexp interpretation.

Lua patterns are not regexp

Certainly not a standard one, at least...
A standard RE implementation, even if not as complete as PCRE, would probably be as big as full Lua code itself (including its pattern implementation...). And a RE engine isn't hard to plug in, you can find several implementations around.

PS.: Any opinion on the two RE implementations by Google? One is small, the other is quite complete, no?
