Emacs already includes it's documentation[1]:

,----[ (info "(emacs)Regexps") ]
| Regular expressions have a syntax in which a few characters are
| special constructs and the rest are "ordinary".  An ordinary character
| is a simple regular expression which matches that same character and
| nothing else.  The special characters are `$', `^', `.', `*', `+', `?',
| `[', `]' and `\'.  Any other character appearing in a regular
| expression is ordinary, unless a `\' precedes it.  (When you use regular
| expressions in a Lisp program, each `\' must be doubled, see the
| example near the end of this section.)  [...]

Bye, Reiner.
