I am trying to write a regexp to mean:
At least one of a few punctuation marks followed by any number of blank spaces followed by a literal star is to be replaced by all those punctuation marks followed by a literal star.
So, when doing interactively,
\([.,?!:;]+\)[[:blank:]]*\* is replaced by
But in elisp, I am not able to get the literal star. I tried:
\\(\[\.,;:?।\]\+\\)\[\[:blank:\]\]\*\\* to be replaced by
But it does not work.
Will you please point what is wrong? I think I am not escaping the literal star correctly. But I am not able to see what is the correct method.
