Fields

CanonEq CanonEq

This constant specifies that a character in a Pattern and a character in the input string only match if they are canonically equivalent.

CaseInsensitive CaseInsensitive

This constant specifies that a Pattern is matched case-insensitively.

Comments Comments

This constant specifies that a Pattern may contain whitespace or comments.

Dotall Dotall

This constant specifies that the '.' meta character matches arbitrary characters, including line endings, which is normally not the case.

Literal Literal

This constant specifies that the whole Pattern is to be taken literally, that is, all meta characters lose their meanings.

Multiline Multiline

This constant specifies that the meta characters '^' and '$' match only the beginning and end of an input line, respectively.

UnicodeCase UnicodeCase

This constant specifies that a Pattern that uses case-insensitive matching will use Unicode case folding.

UnicodeCharacterClass UnicodeCharacterClass
UnixLines UnixLines

This constant specifies that a pattern matches Unix line endings ('\n') only against the '.', '^', and '$' meta characters.

Methods

AsPredicate() AsPredicate()
Clone() Clone()

Creates and returns a copy of this Object.

(Inherited from Object)
Compile(String) Compile(String)

Equivalent to Pattern.compile(pattern, 0).

Dispose(Boolean) Dispose(Boolean) Inherited from Object
Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Compares this instance with the specified object and indicates if they are equal.

(Inherited from Object)
Flags() Flags()

Returns the flags supplied to compile.

GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Returns an integer hash code for this object.

(Inherited from Object)
InvokePattern() InvokePattern()

Returns the regular expression supplied to compile.

JavaFinalize() JavaFinalize()

Invoked when the garbage collector has detected that this instance is no longer reachable.

Tests whether the given regularExpression matches the given input.

Matches(String, String) Matches(String, String)
Notify() Notify()

Causes a thread which is waiting on this object's monitor (by means of calling one of the wait() methods) to be woken up.

(Inherited from Object)
NotifyAll() NotifyAll()

Causes all threads which are waiting on this object's monitor (by means of calling one of the wait() methods) to be woken up.

(Inherited from Object)
Quote(String) Quote(String)

Quotes the given string using "\Q" and "\E", so that all meta-characters lose their special meaning.
