Code Inspection: Escaped meta character

Reports the escaped meta characters, e.g. \. . Some RegExp coding styles specify that meta characters should be placed inside a character class, to make the regular expression easier to understand. For example the regex \d+\.\d+ would be written as \d+[.]\d+ . This inspection does not warn about the meta character [ , ] and ^ , because those would need additional escaping inside a character class.
