How can I match a locale-smart version of /[a-zA-Z]/?

Current Perl documentation can be found at perldoc.perl.org.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

One alphabetic character would be /[^\W\d_]/, no matter what locale you're in. Non-alphabetics would be /[\W\d_]/ (assuming you don't consider an underscore a letter).

[ambrus]: Corion: which coordinate system is the upside down one?
[Corion]: ambrus: "the other" ;) To me, "normal" for GUIs means (0,0) is left-upper corner of the monitor/window. But for Prima, the lower-left corner it is ;)
[Corion]: Which would be OK for mathematics and paper, for me ;)
[ambrus]: Ok, so Prima has a postscript-like coordinate system
