# Introduction

http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Perl_compatible_regular_expressions

In this tip. I introduced a plugin to help you use Perl style regular expression in Vim.
But the maintainer is disappear. And the default package is not easy to install.
So I start to maintain it.

Repo: http://github.com/othree/eregex.vim


## Quick Start

After installed. Just press / or ? for search, it will map to :M command.
You can call eregex#toggle funtion to toggle the keymapping. For example, add the following line into your .vimrc file:

    nnoremap <leader>/ :call eregex#toggle()<CR>

Then you can use <leader>/ to toggle eregex.vim.
For replacement, use :%S// (uppercase S) to use perl style regexp.

See :help eregex for more information.

## Config

Default disable, put this line in vimrc:

    let g:eregex_default_enable = 0

Custom search delimeter:

    let g:eregex_forward_delim = '/'
    let g:eregex_backward_delim = '?'
