What does that mean? Which scripting language do you use? PHP? This is
more a question for your "website" environment than about MySQL.

That shouldn't matter, because the real value $var is inserted before
the query is send to the MySQL server, where REGEXP of the query is
evaluated. If there is a problem, you need to be much more
specific. Quote the error message, show the relevant part of your code
and so on.
