Works in my normal regular expressions. When trying to match in Vim or gvim however, I can not seem to get it to work.

I tried something like this:


Is it not supported, or am I missing something?

  • paste the actual text that you want to match with regexp pattern. – klaus Apr 9 '19 at 10:58
  • No, this is not possible. – Christian Brabandt Apr 9 '19 at 12:29

Vim has its own regex engine and it doesn't support {Cyrillic}.

You probably want to read :h pattern-atoms and :h /character-classes to find out what you can use in your regexes.

I think the best alternative you can find comes from :h /[] (especially the last example):

    A collection.  This is a sequence of characters enclosed in brackets.
    It matches any single character in the collection.

    Example     matches ~
    [xyz]       any 'x', 'y' or 'z'
    [a-zA-Z]$   any alphabetic character at the end of a line
    [А-яЁё]     Russian alphabet (with utf-8 and cp1251)
