while debugging some code, I ran across this error:

Caused by: java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException: Illegal character range near index 14
\bFOR [A-Z][1-0] ADD\b
^

I've never worked with regular expressions much in java, but I have in perl.  that error seems to me like it is being caused by the [1-0] range.  shouldn't the correct way to specify that would be [0-1]?  just wanted to make sure I'm on the right track.  thanks!

The correct way of specifying a character range is indeed [beginChar-endChar], as you stated.

Kind regards,

But on the other hand, you can just do [01] if you want to catch both 0 and 1.
There's no need to specify a range for that.
