Bug #3539

Invalid Hex Escape Triggers Three Warnings in Regexp

Added by Run Paint Run Run over 5 years ago. Updated over 4 years ago.

ruby -v:ruby 1.9.3dev (2010-07-03 trunk 28530) [i686-linux] Backport:


Terribly minor, but three warnings for the same problem is slightly excessive:

 run@paint:~ →  ruby -ve '_ = /\x/'
 ruby 1.9.3dev (2010-07-03 trunk 28530) [i686-linux]
 -e:1: invalid hex escape
 _ = /\x/
 -e:1: Invalid escape character syntax
 _ = /\x/
 -e:1: syntax error, unexpected $end
