Issue #7566 has been updated by drbrain (Eric Hodel).

Category set to core
Target version set to 2.0.0

=begin
Converting any of the regexp special characters could cause a syntax error or warning if the user tries to round-trip the regexp, so I think this is not a bug:

  $ ruby20 -ve 'p("\u{5d}", /[\u{5d}]/)'
  ruby 2.0.0dev (2012-12-15 trunk 38385) [x86_64-darwin12.2.1]
  "]"
  /[\u{5d}]/

  $ ruby20 -ve 'p(/[]]/)'
  ruby 2.0.0dev (2012-12-15 trunk 38385) [x86_64-darwin12.2.1]
  -e:1: warning: character class has ']' without escape: /[]]/
  /[]]/

Bug #7566: Escape (\u{}) forms in Regexp literals
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7566#change-34757

Author: brixen (Brian Ford)
Status: Open
Priority: Normal
Assignee: 
Category: core
Target version: 2.0.0
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.3p327 (2012-11-10 revision 37606) [x86_64-darwin10.8.0]


Why are \u{} escape sequences in Regexp literals not converted to bytes like they are in String literals?
