[sword-devel] diatheke search type regex and the dot ?

I was under the impression that the metacharacter *dot* in a regex means "any
single character".

It would seem that for diatheke with *-s regex* this is not the case at all. 


diatheke -b KJV -s regex Abed.nego

In Windows command shell, that command line does not find the 15 instances
of the name *Abed–nego* where the *en dash* (U+2013) is the punctuation mark
in all such names.

What happens in Linux?
