New submission from bones7456 <bones7456 at gmail.com>:

In section \b , original text is:

Matches the empty string, but only at the beginning or end of a word. A word is defined as a sequence of alphanumeric or underscore characters, so the end of a word is indicated by whitespace or a non-alphanumeric, non-underscore character. Note that \b  is defined as the boundary between \w and \ W, so the precise set of characters deemed to be alphanumeric depends on the values of the UNICODE and LOCALE flags. Inside a character range, \b  represents the backspace character, for compatibility with Python’s string literals.

NOTE: there is space between "\" and "W", I think it is not needed.
