    Dear community,

    Is there any way to use regular expressions in search dialog, or maybe some add-on which will allow me to use that feature. I am sure many of you who use Yahoo Pipe know that issue well. Thank you in advance for any feedback!

    Nope, only simple wildcards (* for any pattern and ? any character) are allowed.

    I know you don't have time for new features at the moment, but let me just add my vote for this idea. I tried to make some filters today, and I think with regex it would be easy to filter for complex things.

    Thirded, regular expressions would be really useful -- the * and ? operators barely work correctly. I know you are worried about performance, but why not let us worry about that? We can just decide how many RegEx queries we want to integrate into our searches, also I really can't imagine that RegEx would perform slower with the correct Java libraries.
