No, you aren't. Thus the reason that your a-z0-9 works fine. As a contribution to the thread:
# cat #!/usr/bin/perl -l while (<DATA>) { chomp; print "$_ " . (/[^a-z0-9!\@#\$%^&*(),.?~:;<>+ =_'"-]/ ? "contains w +eird stuff":"is fine"); } __DATA__ funky town ^-^ b* f1 top` # perl funky town is fine ^-^ is fine b* is fine f1 is fine top` contains weird stuff #

    I thought a-z0-9 was different because you're given a range of characters instead of singly adding them yourself.

    Thanks for correcting my code though.
