**How do I escape a character from a regular expression pattern?**

If the *, +,?, {, and } characters are encountered in a regular expression pattern, the regular expression engine interprets them as quantifiers or part of quantifier constructs unless they are included in a character class.

## How do you use the {N} quantifier in regular expression?
