solaris 11 ed editor backslash not functioning

Edward M.
Hello,


When I try to search for a line that ends with a period using the "ed"
editor  by using the backslash(\) on Solaris 11, like this

/\.$/
?

it returns the question mark(?), however when i executed the same
command in Centos and OpenIndiana 151a in ed
it works:

/\.$/
development.

Wondering if ed in solaris 11 was changed  to behave this way or i need
to make changes to a config file so it will
function same as centos and OI 151a?


Regards
Ed
