Escaping characters in search without grep

Why do I have to escape characters when I am not using grep in my searches?



You can search for new lines using \n and tab characters using \t. That's why you need to escape the backslash with \\.

If you disable regular expressions in the search options, you don't need to escape any other characters besides the backslash.
