Created attachment 162081 [details] [review]
Patch against master to allow extra characters in URL matching

Some links are not fully hi-lighted in gnome terminal (URL's that include { } and | characters) meaning that you are unable to click the full links.

I have attached a patch against master that fixes the issue.

Anyone out there?
Comment 2 Dmitri Bachtin 2012-12-18 10:19:39 UTC
As of g-t the behaviour still persists. Did anyone review that patch?

Is it because the chars are inside the ``unwise ='' BNF spec under [1], page 10? 
With the same reasoning ``%'' should leave because it is inside the ``delims ='' part in the spec.

With the regex rewrite from bug 756038, | is included bug { } stops recognition. IMHO that's fine, so NOTABUG here.
