Hi Brian,

Thanks for taking my proposed patch in and submitting it.

I went with the ERE because, in my opinion, the pattern looks
'cleaner' without having the metacharacters like '()?' escaped.
EREs are POSIX-compatible, so should be supported by any POSIX-compliant shell.

Your non-ERE version does generate the same output as my ERE one. So
it just boils down to one's personal preference.

Thanks.
