.as a regex pattern JAVA-W1078
A single unescaped
. in a regex pattern will match one of any character, not just the period character.
Consider escaping the
. if you meant to match a single period instead.
This regex matches anything but newlines, once:
Pattern p = Pattern.compile(".");
Escape the pattern with two
\ characters if you are matching a single period.
Pattern p = Pattern.compile("\\.");
