Subject Spaces in regular expressions
Date Sat, 13 Feb 2016 18:13:36 GMT

I am using standard whitespace analyzer to index a source code document
using Lucene 5.

I understand that a document with content foo bar would have only two
terms: foo and bar.  When I search for "foo bar" it normally matches the
document. Similarly a regexp query /foo/ or /bar/ also matches the

Can you help me understand why doesn't a regexp query like /foo bar/
doesn't match the document?

Thank you,
