MRI 1.9.3: works OK
rbx 1.8: Raises RegexpError
rbx 1.9: rbx crashes

Full output:


$ rbx -e '"anything".match /[^\u{20}-\u{7E}]/'
Fatal ONIG error: empty range in char class
Assertion failed: (err == ONIG_NORMAL), function maybe_recompile, file vm/builtin/regexp.cpp, line 236.

@wjessop thanks for tracking this down. The regexp is invalid in Ruby 1.8. I'll fix Rubinius 1.9 mode, though.

@wjessop any chance I could see the actual code for this? The example works fine in a script. It fails in a -e because we were not setting the encoding of the string read from ARGV apparently.

If you put '# encoding: utf-8' at the beginning of the file rbx crashes:

# encoding: utf-8
"anything".match /[^\u{20}-\u{7E}]/

The original code is found here:
