hi,
i'm having some trouble with regular expressions in ruby.
If I have a regular expression like this:
^([\x20-\x7E]|\w){1,40}$, it will crash ruby if there are more than
forty characters in it.  I don't understand what is wrong with this
expression, if my expression is changed to
^([\A-Za-z]|\w){1,40}$ it works perfectly well
so does this one: ^([\x20-\x7E]|\w){1,40}$
am I missing something obvious?
