Introduction

Regular expressions (REs), unlike simple queries, allow you to search for text which matches a particular pattern.

Line: 21 to 20
 
[^0-9a-zA-Z] Matches any symbol (but not a number or a letter)
[A-Z][A-Z]* Matches one or more uppercase letters
[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{2}-[0-9]{4} US social security number, e.g. 123-45-6789

PNG;Chart Search for topics containing the words PNG and Chart. This is not a regular expression! But a useful facility that is enabled when regular expression searching is enabled.

PNG;Chart Search for topics containing the words PNG and Chart. The ";" and separator is TWiki-specific and is not a regular expression; it is a useful facility that is enabled when regular expression searching is enabled.
