Re: Ols?n


In regex form:



Ols.n (for any one character not just o and e).

As a BASH pattern match

Ols[oe]n or Ols?n

In a windows search dialog:


And if you really wanna be sloppy

Ols*n will of course work in all of those but the regex which would need to look like Ols.*n but you wouldn't want to do that anyway because that matches any number of chars.

Any real regex engine will recognize "ols[oe]n" as a shorthand for "ols(o|e)n". Some attention to detail, Andy.
