I see.  So it's another nonportable feature like printf '%(%s)T'.
Good to know!

imadev:~$ s='foo bar'; r='\s'; if [[ $s =~ $r ]]; then echo match; fi
imadev:~$ printf '%(%s)T\n' -1
s

address@hidden:~$ s='foo bar'; r='\s'; if [[ $s =~ $r ]]; then echo match; fi
match
address@hidden:~$ printf '%(%s)T\n' -1
