Primitive type: regular expression

Primitive type: regular expression

Regular expressions (regexes) are things that can match parts of strings.

Regexes are represented by normal strings. Note that to escape something in a regex the backslash is used, in script code this also needs to be escaped. For example, in a script, the regex matching a single backslash is "\\\\".

For more information, see the wxWidgets regular expression documentation.
