TPerlRegEx Crashes

Apparently, your regular expression pattern matcher doesn’t like this
regular expression:

comment_column(’[a-z]

Perhaps the trailing single-quote?

It crashes.

EurekaLog 6.0.24

Application:

The returned error message explains a lot.

TPerlRegEx.Compile() - Error in regex at offset 21: missing ).

Your unmatched open paren is erroneous. Parens create groups in regular
expressions. If you intend to search for a paren within your regular express
then it must be escaped.
