Because your expression is wrong. And I don't think about format dd.mm.yy and number 20 as month

Try to find error you will learn

Nonsense. My regular expression is valid for Boost.Regex

There is different syntax for different regular expression engines.
You don't need to make your expression so complicated, you can use:
[0-3][0-9].[0-3][0-9].[0-9]{4}

However, these regular expressions are imperfect.

[0-3][0-9].[0-3][0-9].[0-9]{4}

Not Date!
31.13.2020
32.01.2020

Same as your. It will find it too.
Regular expression doesn't serve to valid your stupid request. It can't check if february has 28 or 29 days e.t.c.

Do not worry. I have another magical expression, very complex (614 character). And it works in the case you're talking about.
