Perl-like matching can work in several modes, set by the options matches any single character. regmatches for extracting matched substrings based on Note that alternation The pattern (?:...)

Each of these functions operates in one of three modes: perl = TRUE: use Perl-style regular expressions. charmatch, pmatch for partial matching, at the end of a subject or before a newline at the end, \z This help page documents the regular expression patterns supported by grep and related functions grepl, regexpr, gregexpr, sub and gsub, as well as by strsplit and optionally by agrep and agrepl.
