14.5.1.2 The Match-syntactic-class Operator (\sclass)

This operator matches any character whose syntactic class is represented by a specified character. ‘\sclass’ represents this operator where class is the character representing the syntactic class you want. For example, ‘w’ represents the syntactic class of word-constituent characters, so ‘\sw’ matches any word-constituent character.
