gawk: Using Constant Regexps

 6.1.2 Using Regular Expression Constants
 Regular expression constants consist of text describing a regular
 expression enclosed in slashes (such as '/the +answer/').  This minor

 then goes on to describe "strongly typed regexp constants", which are a
 'gawk' extension.
