and how they make life worth living
Think of wildcard characters on steroids.
Regular Expressions provide a powerful methodology to locate data that matches a given "pattern". These have long been utilized by such applications as grep, perl, vi to incredible effect.
The syntax is quite well defined and I believe could be implemented easily into a autoit3 command, probably by grabbing it from an open-source grep parser.
There is a RegEx VBScript object available, but I much prefer coding in Au3

For example, I use AI3 to drive the RegExp search/replace feature of my text-editor (TextPad) .. and it works like a dream. Meets all my RegExp needs, but it might be a different angle compared with where you're coming from.
Another alternative is to use grep for windows in an AI3 script (with or without a text-editor). Again .. depends on how you need to use the RegExps.
