Super searches using Regular Expressions


A "regular expression," also known as regex or regexp, is a small programming language that adds great flexibility to searches that can be made with your Mac. It is a powerful tool to make specialized searches. For instance, it can find duplicate lines, strip excessive carriage returns, add HTML tags to text, or find suspect characters in a text. Basically, it is a powerful way to search, sort of like searching on steroids.
