Using Boolean search, Agent Ransack finds and displays all lines in a file which match the search pattern. Is there a way to get the same results using regular expressions?

I have checked the various "self help" information, but have not been able to find an answer. I have not used regular expression previously, and I am not a PERL programmer, so it is possible that the answer is hidden in the document on PERL extensions, but if so I have been unable to recognize it.

Yes, in the Options tab just tick the 'Regular Expression' check box to switch Agent Ransack from Boolean searching to regular expression searching.
