    The instructions refer to "For a regex match, use forward slashes as a PCRE delimiter."

    What does that mean?

    regex = regular expression
    PCRE = Perl compatible regular expression
    Perl = a scripting language

    Useful for the cognoscente, but beyond me.

    The "beyond me" part, yes.

    Regular expressions are a syntax for pattern matching. Powerful, but about as far from intuitive as you can get.

    Perhaps the instructions could be translated into every-day English--or hidden?
