Up until a few days ago, I went throughout my life not knowing about POSIX character classes like :alnum:, :ascii:, and :punct:, and have instead been writing those regex by hand.

This simultaneously changes everything and nothing.

@JoshStrobl I checked out 'POSIX' on DuckDuckGo. I still don't get it. Do you mind giving me a crash course? 😁
