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.
