SYNOPSISRegex compile( String pattern, [REFlags] fl=createArray(1) )
pattern The regular expression pattern to compile
fl A list of Regex.REFlags(3kaya) options for the regular expression. This parameter is optional and defaults to the empty list.
Compile a regular expression and return the compiled
This can then be re-used in several function calls for greater efficiency.
Note that if a literal backslash needs to be matched, it must be written as "\\\\" as both Kaya and PCRE will interpret one layer of backslashes. You can avoid this from Kaya 0.2.6 onwards by using a raw string instead.
// these two are equivalent
test1 = quickMatch("\\\\",string);
test2 = quickMatch(R"\\",string);
