I just found Java code like this:
["bla","bla","bla"] // String array of course
String.split does use regex, but from my research I found that
; is not a special character in regex and doesn't have to be escaped. So I tried replacing it with:
and it still does the same! So what is happening here? Is Java trying to be nice and ignores a useless backslash in the regex? But I tried it with Notepad++, too, and there it also both finds a single semikolon.
