in reply to Regex word options

agree with ww. The '||' operator may be better suited here than the word boundary '\b'. Also, what are you trying with the '?' non-greedy quantifier? Are you looking for lines starting with these words? Perhaps I'm missing something, but you would probably benefit more from providing some input data.
