Python regular expression

Hi,

As I understand it, python uses a pcre engine to work with regular
expression.
My question is, then, why expressions like :
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/sre.py", line 180, in compile
return _compile(pattern, flags)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/sre.py", line 227, in _compile
raise error, v # invalid expression
sre_constants.error: unexpected end of pattern

don't work? They are ok in perl...

Thanks in advance.
