What variant of regex does Path Finder support. For example, list maybe 20 variations on RE syntax and capabilities. I doubt Cocoatech implemented their own variation. It would be real nice to know that Path Finder supports variant XXX w/ additional capabilities YYY and without capabilities ZZZ.

    +2! Is there a RegEx spec of what PF supports? Without this, it's an exercise in frustration...
