40**Syntax**
41
42The select tool searches the data for lines containing or not containing a match to the given pattern. Regular Expression is introduced in this tool. A Regular Expression is a pattern describing a certain amount of text. 
43
44- **( ) { } [ ] . * ? + \ ^ $** are all special characters. **\\** can be used to "escape" a special character, allowing that special character to be searched for.
45- **\\A** matches the beginning of a string(but not an internal line).
46- **\\d** matches a digit, same as [0-9].
47- **\\D** matches a non-digit.
48- **\\s** matches a whitespace character.
49- **\\S** matches anything BUT a whitespace.
50- **\\t** matches a tab.
51- **\\w** matches an alphanumeric character.
52- **\\W** matches anything but an alphanumeric character.
53- **(** .. **)** groups a particular pattern.
54- **\\Z** matches the end of a string(but not a internal line).
55- **{** n or n, or n,m **}** specifies an expected number of repetitions of the preceding pattern.
56
57  - **{n}** The preceding item is matched exactly n times.
58  - **{n,}** The preceding item is matched n or more times. 
59  - **{n,m}** The preceding item is matched at least n times but not more than m times. 
60
61- **[** ... **]** creates a character class. Within the brackets, single characters can be placed. A dash (-) may be used to indicate a range such as **a-z**.
62- **.** Matches any single character except a newline.
63- ***** The preceding item will be matched zero or more times.
64- **?** The preceding item is optional and matched at most once.
65- **+** The preceding item will be matched one or more times.
66- **^** has two meaning:
67  - matches the beginning of a line or string. 
68  - indicates negation in a character class. For example, [^...] matches every character except the ones inside brackets.
69- **$** matches the end of a line or string.
70- **\|** Separates alternate possibilities.

74**Example**
75
76- **^chr([0-9A-Za-z])+** would match lines that begin with chromosomes, such as lines in a BED format file.
77- **(ACGT){1,5}** would match at least 1 "ACGT" and at most 5 "ACGT" consecutively.
78- **([^,][0-9]{1,3})(,[0-9]{3})\*** would match a large integer that is properly separated with commas such as 23,078,651.
79- **(abc)|(def)** would match either "abc" or "def".
80- **^\\W+#** would match any line that is a comment.
