- setlocale and regular expressions

I've got a problem with setting locale and regular expression.
I can set them without any trouble - I'm using LC_ALL category.
In Perl setting locale LC_CTYPE works also with regex but I was trying
to apply simple pattern [a-z] for polish characters just like this:
// testing purposes
//$locale_info = localeconv();
//echo strftime("%A %e %B %Y", mktime(0, 0, 0, 16, 6, 2005));
if (preg_match('/^[a-z]$/', 'aezztest'))
echo 'works ;-)';
Maybe I'm doing sth wrong?
Has anyone succeeded in using locale and regex?
'locale -a' gives me also pl_PL.iso88592 - but when I use it I get the
same result as pl_PL.
thanks in advance for any help
Re: setlocale and regular expressions
Just in case you didn't know: Google's G2 thingy is extremly borken.
That's because [a-z] matches is the equivalanet to [\x61-\x7a]
If you want to match lowercase extended characters in iso8859-2
encoding, you need to generate a character class like:
(and lots more I guess).
