[ragel-users] Equivalent of PCRE \b

Hi all,
We're attempting to port a large collection of PCRE patterns into Ragel.
Most of the patterns are very straightforward, but a number of them use the
\b directive (zero-width, non-word char followed by word char or
vise-versa).  For example "my.*\btest" should match "my first test", but
*not* "my shortest".  I'm sure we could handle this on a case-by-case
basis, but I was wondering if anyone has an easy conversion.

Thanks in advance!
