Description of problem:
The backwards incompatible change of search expression syntax in joe 4.2 (or 4.1 already)? is annoying, but I can relearn it is weirdly backslashed version of regexps. Except that I can't figure out how to search for character ranges anymore. In joe 4.0, searching for \[a-e] worked the same as \[abcde], now it doesn't, even when [a-e] is valid regexp. Searching for \[abcde] works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
which documents the new search expression syntax mentions:
For example, \[A-Z] finds any uppercase letter.
but it doesn't actually work, while \[ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ] works.
