Appendix A. SSH2 Manpage for sshregex
DescriptionThis document describes the regular expressions (or globbing patterns) used in filename globbing with scp2 and sftp2.
PatternsThe escape character is a backslash "\". With this you can escape meta characters which you'd like to use in their plain character form. In the following examples literal "E" and "F" denote any expression, be it a pattern or character, etc.
Character SetsA character set starts with "[" and ends at nonescaped "]" that is not part of a POSIX character set specifier and that does not follow immediately after "[". The following characters have a special meaning and need to be escaped if meant literally:
[[:xdigit:]XY] is typically equivalent to [0123456789ABCDEFabcdefXY] .
