[SOLVED] Vim Match problem

I've some problem in using regular expression in a VIM syntax configuration file.
I've need to match a string as <<< some to match >>> so that it matches only some to match .
With standard regular expression i know that for this goal works fine the regex:


but in Vim syntax files this doesn't work. I've tested
but nothing, since in this later when I'm opening the file, it turns always the error
"E:64 \? follows nothing".
I'm sorry about my disgusting English! Smilie

Thank for reads
