String#slice example has a syntax error
http://www.ruby-doc.org/core-1.9.3/String.html#method-i-slice has a syntax error:
Oh, I have just realized that similar problems exist in the other regexp examples on the page, not just for slice.

Could be an issue with ruby-doc.org?
More specifically, it was a problem in the HTML pages generated by RDoc v3.12 (and ruby-doc.org was indeed using that version).
Over the weekend James Britt regenerated the "core" and "std=lib" RDoc pages (for all Ruby versions) using a copy of rdoc that included this bug's ruby_lex.rb patches, so the regexp literals on those pages should be fixed now.
(The gem RDocs on the site are built separately and so they may not have been updated yet.)
