First off, not 100% sure the type of question I'm asking is on-topic for this forum, so I can close if necessary.
I was attempting to use
str_replace replace a lower case letter with an upper case one. In
sub, I would use:
> sub("(Hi)", "\\U\\1", "Hi, how's it going?", perl = T)  "HI, how's it going?"
\U is perl-style regex.
This, of course, fails in
> str_replace("Hi, how's it going?", "(Hi)", "\\U\\1")  "1, how's it going?"
I'm not looking for a solution, I have one.
I was just curiuous to know if
regex is supported in
stringr, if not, are there plans to, and if not, why?
