I just changed
My settings were
Search Syntax: Simple Matching
Checked Options: Ignore Case, Wrap Search
Everything else unchecked.
I was going to attach an image of the panes, but thought better of
All the documentation appears to be in Japanese, seriously.
I used to use grep and Perl regex a bit -- as built into Nisus, BBedit
and some other editor for OS 9 -- but am certainly no expert in it. But
I am working on help text for the various switches for TeXShop.
From here down or more than you asked for:
For limited help with the Perl OS X syntax go to the terminal and enter:
for Perl regular expressions quick start
for Perl regular expressions tutorial
for Perl regular expressions, the rest of the story
These are as useful/unuseful as most man pages, being a little cryptic.
Also this is a pretty good site for learning regex:
Also the book *Mastering Regular Expressions* by Jeffrey E. F. Friedl
(O'Reilly) is very good, but way overkill for my needs.
