grep Bracket Expressions


Hi,

In the info document for 'grep', in the section:
3.2 Character Classes and Bracket Expressions
I am curious on what the following bracket expressions are used for - I played with them to try and find out on my own, but was not successful:

Code:
 `[.'
      represents the open collating symbol.


 `.]'
      represents the close collating symbol.


 `[='
      represents the open equivalence class.


 `=]'
      represents the close equivalence class.
I am well acquainted with the other bracket expressions, respectfully.

Clifton

This appears to define those terms (but I don't understand it....)

Thanks ... I've been reviewing the web page a little bit - look like a school day's work.
