I changed the posting to just ast-developers
it would be good for all to not cross-post identical messages to { ast-users 
ast-developers }

ast regex [[:NAME:]] uses wctype(3) and iswctype(3) to support all
functions supported by the current locale, and this winds its way
to all ast regex and ksh pattern matching and globbing

rather than document all possible NAMEs for all possible locales,
possibly in multiple places (regex(ast), typeset(ksh), etc.),
can we reference documentation that describes the concept and how
a user could determine the available functions for a specific locale?
