StringV(\Q.Fa*[un]a{1,}\E)
result, err := client.Query(
	f.RegexEscape(".Fa*[un]a{1,}"))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
\Q.Fa*[un]a{1,}\E
System.out.println(
    client.query(
        RegexEscape(".Fa*[un]a{1,}")
    ).get()
);
"\Q.Fa*[un]a{1,}\E"
client.query(
  q.RegexEscape('.Fa*[un]a{1,}')
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error('Error: %s', err))
\Q.Fa*[un]a{1,}\E
result = client.query(
  q.regex_escape(".Fa*[un]a{1,}")
)
print(result)
\Q.Fa*[un]a{1,}\E
