Regular Expressions


This section provides an overview of how to create Regular Expressions for use with some CAST features that allow their use - for example the Reference Finder in CAST Analysis Manager, or the Search in Code in CAST Enlighten.

CAST currently uses two Regular Expression "engines":

  • TCL
  • Boost (Perl)

However, it is not possible to use both formats with all CAST features that allow the use of Regular Expressions. Below is a table explaining this in more detail:

TCL Can be used with ALL CAST features that allow the use of Regular Expressions, EXCEPT:
  • Reference Pattern in CAST Analysis Manager
  • Search in Code in CAST Enlighten
  • DB2 z/OS filter rules
Boost (Perl) Can ONLY be used with:
  • Reference Pattern in CAST Analysis Manager
  • Search in Code in CAST Enlighten
  • DB2 z/OS filter rules
